The KACP Collaborative Research Report is a result of [Phase 3] Korea-ASEAN Cooperation Project (KACP) on Education and Exchange Program for Young Scholars in Women’s Studies funded by ASEAN-ROK Cooperation Fund and conducted from January-December 2016.

This KACP Collaborative Research Report presents 18 research studies conducted by six collaborative teams commissioned to address these contested issues and themes: (1) violence against women; (2) peace, environment, and security; (3) ethnicity, religion, and sexuality; (4) gender, migration, and culture; (5) femininity, pop-culture, and the beauty industry; and (6) gender, sex/sexuality education and culture. Each of the 18 research articles underwent review and revision resulting from research development workshops in Bangkok, Thailand and the discussions and comments by the coordinators and other suggestions received from the senior scholars and the larger audience at the 4th Congress of AAWS in Hanoi, Vietnam.

It is very important to note that the research results presented here have been submitted for publication consideration to the Asian Journal of Women’s Studies (AJWS), a quarterly SSCI-indexed journal owned by the Asian Center for Women’s Studies of Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea and published by Routledge, Taylor & Francis, the leading publisher in social sciences based in the UK. Submission of any of these research articles to another journal is prohibited while these papers are still on screening process by AJWS. Citations are also not permitted without the knowledge of the research collaborator, coordinator or the KACP Secretariat.
