UNESCO's Dr. Sonia Bahri moving on!

Sonia Bahri as the then Chief of Section for International Cooperation in Higher Education – UNESCO/Paris came to visit us back in 2007 at Boston University to announce the official creation of our UNESCO/UNITWIN Network on Gender, Culture, & Development! After collaborating with us for many years as our UNESCO/UNITWIN Network expanded thematically and geographically, she became Chief of UNESCO's Section for Science Policy and Partnerships. Sonia is once again on the move: she will be an advisor for Science, Technology and Innovation and education policies, and will help University Paris-Dauphine launch its Master2 in Peace Studies. 

Congratulations Sonia!
