Anggia Anggraini

PhD candidate

Anggia’s research examines the externally driven interventions in humanitarian, development and peacebuilding in conflict affected and remote communities of the Highlands of Papua New Guinea.

The research project builds on 15 years of international donor-funded technical advisory roles in development aid and humanitarian sectors where Anggia has worked across Central, South East Asia and Pacific region in strengthening sectoral capacity in planning and programming to address the structural barriers to gender equality.

Her research aspired by recent work with UN Women in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands, where Anggia supported in-country teams to integrate gender perspectives into humanitarian preparedness, response and recovery activities, and gender sensitivity can be a catalytic component in inter-sectoral coordination, policy and planning as women face an increased vulnerability in fragile contexts.
