Everyday Justice in Myanmar – new book out in summer 2020 (webinar)

June 10, 2020 - 11:00-12:00

Interview with Senior Researcher Helene Maria Kyed, editor of the book.

Everyday justice in Myanmar is the first book to explore how ordinary people in Myanmar access justice and resolve disputes based on a unique collection of ethnographic studies. The empirical findings of the book – drawing on fieldwork in Karen, Mon, Pa-0, Naga areas and in Yangon city – shed important light on the wider dynamics of state making, identity politics, and authority in transitional Myanmar. It also contributes to larger debates about legal pluralism within academia and the increased focus in policy circles on informal justice and non-state authorities.

At this webinar, the editor of the book, Helene Maria Kyed (DIIS), will discuss with journalist Tobias Havmand Andreassen (DIIS), the main findings of the book, its intended impact and the motivation behind the studies. The book will be published in July/August by NIAS press, so this webinar is a ‘trailer’ to the book.

11.25-12.00   Q&A – moderated by Tobias Havmand Andreassen<<
