Angelina Jolie is set to join the London School Of Economics staff as a visiting professor on anew masters course. LSE has confirmed that the the course will be run by it’s Centre for Women, Peace and security which was launched last year by the actress and Lord William Hague.

In 2012 Jolie and Hague co-founded a global initiative to tackle sexual violence in conflict zones, the move came in the aftermath of Jolie’s directorial debut In The Land Of Blood and Honey which was set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war.

Speaking about the appointment UN Special envoy Angelina Jolie said:

“It is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict. I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students, as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the UN.”
