Comparative Research on Gender & Reparations in South-East Asia: Myanmar

This paper aims to identify lessons from the region on gender-sensitive reparations policies, in order to develop policy recommendations and advocacy strategies. The case study focuses on Myanmar, and research was conducted between 2021 and 2022 in Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Timor-Leste. Given the situation in Myanmar, research was limited, with a significant part reviewing relevant literature. For security reasons, there were only limited direct consultations, with the majority of interviews online.

This case study is part of our broader research on Urgent Steps to Ensure Right to Remedy for Victims of Sexual and Gender-based Violence in ASEAN, published in October 2022. The research report can be accessed here.
