Call for interviewees!
Hi, I'm Maria Munir. I'm a postgraduate student from the Centre for Applied Human Rights at the University of York. I'm looking for at least 10 interviewees who identify as South Asian (Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Indian), and campaign in the U.K. on gender identity and sexual orientation rights.

My question:
"How do honour and shame affect the public advocacy strategies used by South Asian human rights defenders working on sexual orientation and gender identity rights?"

If you fit the bill, please allow me to contact you! My research has been approved by the University ethics committee.

The interview will be conducted in English via Skype, at a time that suits us both. It will last up to 1.5 hours, and you will be given some of the questions beforehand so you have time to think about your answers.

Unfortunately, I don't have the funds to pay contributors, but I will be sending you the finished analysis after it is completed. Plus, I'll be hoping to publish it in different formats, including in an academic human rights journal, so that it can be used for further research. My supervisor has already secured Amnesty to look at it so we can create recommendations for civil society organisations. All contributors will have the chance to use their name, or to use a pseudonym if they prefer.

If you can't take part, please pass it on!
