In this episode, Helene Maria Kyed from DIIS joins Duncan McCargo of NIAS for a conversation about her book Everyday Justice in Myanmar. Kyed shares her insights on the project behind the book, and justice and informal resolutions in Myanmar.
Based on a unique collection of ethnographic studies, Everyday Justice in Myanmar: Informal Resolutions and State Evasion in a Time of Contested Transition is the first book to explore how ordinary people in Myanmar access justice and resolve disputes, and was published in August 2020 by NIAS Press.
