We are pleased to announce that a new research project will start in October: “Exploring Community Perceptions and Coping Strategies on Violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar”
The project received a Creating Safer Space Large Grant through our open funding competition.
The project is led by Abellia Anggi Wardani at Knowledge Hub Myanmar. The project will investigate how local ethnic groups in Rakhine state, Myanmar, identify and cope with the local violent events they encountered or anticipated.
The project uses a participatory action research approach not only to compare different conceptions of violence of the different ethnic groups in the region but also to explore divergent strategies of said groups to handle and reduce violence in their respective communities.
