Dr. Goetz served at the United Nations between 2005 and 2014 as a Policy Director of Governance, Peace and Security, at UNIFEM and UN Women. From 1991 – 2005 she was a Professorial Fellow in Political Science at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex. She also served the United Nations Development Program in Chad and Guinea in the mid-1980s. While at the UN, Dr. Goetz spearheaded initiatives to build women’s participation in representative politics, to promote women’s empowerment in the UN’s peace building work in post-conflict situations, and to support the participation of women leaders and rights organizations in peace talks and post-conflict decision-making. She worked with the UN Security Council to improve responses to sexual violence in conflict, and to build peacekeepers’ capacities to prevent these abuses. Dr. Goetz is the author of seven books on the subjects of gender, politics and policy in developing countries, and on accountability reforms – including the 2009 volume: Governing Women: Women in Politics and Governance in Developing Countries, and the UNIFEM flagship report: Who Answers to Women? Gender and Accountability.
