We both carried out our PhD research on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s (NATO) engagement with the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. While Katharine’s focus was on the alliance’s political structures and public diplomacy and included visits to NATO in 2014, Matt’s research visits took place in 2012 and examined NATO’s military structures and the (re)construction of military masculinities and femininities. What follows is a conversation between us that captures some thoughts and feelings about conducting interviews at NATO headquarters.
