Research project This project examines the activism of diasporic minority women's organizations and its impact on conflict transformation and peacebuilding in Myanmar.
The growing body of research examining the different ways in which diasporas engage in conflicts and peacebuilding has remained overwhelmingly gender blind; very little is known about women's political activism in the diaspora, or about the gendered impacts of diaspora engagements in homeland conflicts and peace processes. Addressing this research gap, this project examines the activism of diasporic minority women's organizations and its impact on conflict transformation and peacebuilding in Myanmar. It approaches diaspora engagement in homeland conflicts as a gendered phenomenon, structured by gendered relations of power but also potentially contributing to reshape gender orders in the homeland. Further, in the context of ongoing changes, this projects will contribute with highly timely new knowledge about the gendered dynamics of political transition and conflict transformation in the country.
