The book must be commended for not only outlining the variation in participation, access, concerns and lived experiences of women within Myanmar, but also for its commitment to a feminist methodology to study conflict and International Relations (IR). The contributors include a variety of practitioners, academics and specialists, based in Myanmar as well as outside its borders. Each chapter offers a thoughtful reflection on the contributor’s positionality, providing a great example of how such reflexive practice can powerfully advance academic research. The book’s breadth of methodological approaches provides insight into the plurality of ways to engage, analyse and cooperate within research. From interviews with female political leaders to participatory photography projects, from focus groups to oral histories, these contributions offer a holistic window into the variations of lived experiences within Myanmar. Taken as a whole, the chapters illustrate the complex set of political realities, and also demonstrate the strengths of vigorous research within critical feminist IR.
