On Monday, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed Major General Kristin Lund – a former deputy commander of the Norwegian Armed Forces – to head the mission in Cyprus, which is divided between Greece and Turkey.

She is the first-ever female commander of a Untied Nations peacekeeping mission. Right now, women make up just 13% of the U.N.'s 125,000 peacekeepers.

What does Lund see for the decades-old Cyrpus peacekeeping mission, what does she believe women can bring to peacekeeping?
