Extension of Call for Proposals: Rebuilding Prospects for Peace in Post-Coup Myanmar

In light of several requests from interested contributors, Ottawa Dialogue is pleased to announce an extension of the Call for Proposals for an edited volume/special issue on women’s informal peacebuilding/peacemaking role(s) in Myanmar since the 2021 coup. The new submission deadline is August 31, 2023.

The abstracts should fall under the broad thematic area of “How are women’s movements (in all forms) influencing peace efforts in post-coup Myanmar? This can include but is not limited to: mapping of ongoing efforts and responses from women-led Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), informal groups and religious communities, monitoring and evaluation frameworks for informal women-led peace movements, new strategies of women’s activism in response to the coup (both within Myanmar and from exile); national activism vs. activism in the regions; the role(s) of international movements and governments in supporting women’s peace activism in Myanmar; how new technologies (and technological blackouts) are affecting women’s peace activism; and others.

The other dates remain unchanged. We look forward to organizing a virtual author’s workshop in November 2023. Full articles are due for submission in early 2024. We are able to publish under pseudonyms for security reasons for authors.

Please refer to the original Call for Proposals document on our website https://ottawadialogue.ca/news-events/call-for-proposals-myanmar/ for detailed submission guidelines and application format.

If you have already submitted a proposal, there is no need to resubmit it. All previously received proposals will be considered in the evaluation process.
