In July 2004 the Chief of the OWINF participated in the
Military Committee’s visit to KFOR. There, the Chief was
able to talk with the local deployed service women, as well
as their commanders about experiences of the service women’s
presence. The outcome was very positive, in that both the
female and male soldiers were working under the same rules
and conditions and the benefits of the service women’s presence
while contacting the local population, especially women and
children was emphasised.
In December 2004, the Office along with some Committee
Delegates was invited to the “Women in Peacekeeping Operations
Conference” in Amsterdam, which was organised by the EU.
The Office met potential speakers for this years Meeting,
as well as to announce publicly the Committee on Women in
the NATO Forces` existence..
