Khin Khin Lwin

Khin Khin is currently undertaking a Master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. She told us:

“I am keen to further develop my capacity in peace building and conflict transformation to examine, explore, and respond to in-depth the many complexities and challenging issues that my people and I face in our country, which is intrinsically linked to and affected by issues unfolding at a regional and global level.”

In October 2016 Khin Khin was awarded the Rei Foundation/NCPACS Doctoral Scholarship to pursue research on “Multiple identities and peace building agency in Myanmar: Women’s room to manoeuvre as peace builders in the face of challenges” within the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Otago, Dunedin New Zealand and she intends to begin research work towards the end of 2017. In the future she plans to put these skills to good use in the development of Myanmar.
