Presented By Institute of Development Studies

Monday 8 May 2017 13:00 to 14:30
Room 220

In this seminar, Ja Htoi Pan Maran reflects on the political transition from the perspective of the people of Kachin state. The seminar will then present findings from a study on how young people in Kachin experience insecurity, and how they take different forms of social and political action in response to everyday challenges. The study shows how a growing sense of Kachin nationalism informs a range of individual and collective actions aimed at ‘building Kachin’.
