This doctoral research project focuses on the role of social media in armed conflict and peacebuilding from a gender perspective, looking closely at the case of Myanmar.
Specifically, the project aims to answer the questions: What is the role of social media in addressing conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence? Do social media help or hinder efforts to prevent and mitigate the impact of this kind of violence?
The PhD project at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo is part of the PRIO project 'Social Media in Armed Conflict: The Case of Myanmar', funded by the Research Council of Norway.
