'Social Media in Armed Conflict through a Gender Lens: The Case of Myanmar' is a PhD research project about the gendered impact of social media on armed conflict and peacebuilding in Myanmar. 

Specifically, the project asks: what impact does social media have on conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence? Does social media help or hinder efforts to counter SGBV in conflict?

The PhD project is part of the PRIO project 'Social Media in Armed Conflict: The Case of Myanmar', funded by the Research Council of Norway.
