Irina Bokova, re-elected as Director General for a second term last year, outlines her main priorities for UNESCO. The first is girls' education, especially after the dramatic kidnapping of over 200 young girls in Nigeria. She also wants to encourage women's empowerment and backs implementing quotas for women in the European institutions. Finally, she comments on the situation in Ukraine and on UNESCO's role there.
