A participatory research program in Indonesia, Timor-Leste and Myanmar is focused on understanding how women victims of gender-based violence in conflict and post-conflict settings survive in situations where impunity is the norm. AJAR worked with women survivors of violence and torture, them using participatory, in-depth methodologies to document their stories and support their own efforts to improve their lives.
In the end, 140 women participated in this action research. A series of short videos have been produced. Findings of the research have been shared with the 1325 Global Study team led by UN Expert, Ms. Radhika Coomaraswamy, and presented during the Beijing Plus 20 Asia-Pacific CSO Forum last year.
