Julie Marie Hansen, Doctoral Researcher at PRIO, presented a paper at the international conference ‘Social Media in Armed Conflict’ on 25-26 November 2020.

Her paper focuses on the use of social media in preventing sexual and gender-based violence, with a focus on Myanmar. The conference included paper presentations from both scholars and practitioners inquiring about how social media and other digital communication and information technologies affect violence and peacebuilding. Hansen’s paper will be published at a later date as part of her PhD thesis.
