Myanmar Activists in the Making: Navigating in a Changing Political Landscape
2015 (engelsk)Inngår i: Asia in Focus: A Nordic journal on Asia by early career researchers, ISSN 2446-0001, nr 2, s. 45-51Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

Based on four months of anthropological fieldwork this article contributes to an understanding of the lives of Myanmar youth activists. The aim is to portray how this particular group of youth differs in their motivations and activist practices from previous generations. In taking action, the youth of our research draw on capacities for building individual knowledge and skills acquired during training provided by an INGO (international non-governmental organization). Through the theoretical concept of the trickster, we argue that these youths embody an ambiguous and mediating role when engaging in activism. We show how the youth navigate and challenge the social and cultural norms of present society. They do this by negotiating and bridging ideas of democracy and human rights to their communities in such a way that the ideas become socially accepted and translated into a local context. These youth do not want another revolution. They want profound development and consolidation.
