CDSSEA 18: Gender, Conflict-induced Displacement, and Livelihood

A Case Study of Lana Zupja Camp, Kachin State, Myanmar

The resumption of armed clashes between the Myanmar Army and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) in June 2011 forced more than one hundred thousand Kachin civilians to flee their villages. They lost their farms and belongings and resettled in camps in both Government Controlled Areas and Non-Government Controlled Areas. This book explores the changing gender roles and relations among Kachin Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in one of the IDP camps along the China-Myanmar border: Lana Zupja Camp.
