CNES-HBF Project :Impact of conflict on women in Assam and Nagaland

German Heinrich Boll Foundation (HBF) has supported C-NES in conducting a year long study on the Impact of Conflict on Women, in Assam and Nagaland.The focus is on the suffering and trauma of women at times of conflict and the extent of post trauma stress syndrome (PTSS) and post trauma stress disorder (PTSD).The major aim of this project is the documentation of the impact of conflict on women in the two states and wide dissemination of research and findings through publications, a film, seminars and the media. The project will seek to place these issues in the larger context of the challenges of nation building, regional growth and also look at broader issues of just laws, the use of State power and the rights of citizens especially women. The core of the project are the field surveys in the two states with specific and detailed questionnaires that are being administered to households.The 3 districts selected in Assam are: Sibsagar, Dhemaji and Kokrajhar. In Nagaland, Kohima, Peren and Tuensang have been selected.
