Religious Conflicts in Myanmar and Evolving Sharing Practices – Introduction to Project

Myanmar has faced serious violence between Buddhist and Muslim communities, with some observers from inside and outside Myanmar blaming conflict on rumours and information shared online, including social media such as Facebook. In order to better understand the relationship between online and offline information sharing practices, between February and May 2014, members of the Myanmar IT for Development Organization (MIDO) have conducted a research study titled ‘Communication Flows in Myanmar: Religious Conflict and Evolving Sharing Practices.’ It involved interviews and focus group discussions with 288 persons in conflict affected areas in Lashio (Shan State), Meiktila (Mandalay Region), Thandwe and Sitwe (Rakhine State).

De-Justifying Mass Violence in Myanmar – Introduction to Project

Matt Schissler and Dr Matthew Walton of Oxford University, UK, are undertaking a research study on ‘De-justifying mass violence in Myanmar: Informing and catalysing appropriate civil society and international responses,’ in partnership with MIDO.

The core purpose of the initiative is to make available evidence, analysis, and advice to catalyse and strengthen efforts to prevent mass violence in Myanmar. The initiative establishes academic research capacity based in Myanmar, partners with civil society (the Myanmar IT for Development Organization, MIDO) and is associated with a reputable international institution (Oxford), to undertake a research project to inform and catalyse local and international initiatives including those to monitor and counteract speech that may incite violence, engage with companies such as Facebook, and other campaigns and strategic attempts to promote peace.

This initiates the Myanmar Media and Society Research project in order to make available evidence, analysis, and advice that catalyses and strengthens efforts to prevent mass violence. The research would focus on the ways in which discourses and narratives justifying violence are produced, consumed and circulate, online and offline.
