Inclusive Economies, Enduring Peace in Myanmar and Sri Lanka: Report Launch
- 24 September 2020 at 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
- Monash Gender Peace and Security
This event will launch the field report and research brief piloting a new method (the Feminist Everyday Observatory Tool) to capture the impacts of conflict on women's social reproduction (unpaid household labour). The field report outlines the findings from a comparative qualitative research study, carried out in two case studies in Sri Lanka and Myanmar across six sites (two each of conflict-affected, proximate to conflict and relatively stable) using the Feminist Everyday Observatory Tool. The project led by Prof Shirin Rai (Warwick) and Prof Jacqui True (Monash) and funded by the Monash Warwick Alliance, is examining the depletion of women's and household labour in situations of conflict and fragility.
