Covering all the areas of the North East and South East Asia, from Mongolia to East Timor, the members have done researches and studies of contemporary women's history through the 4-year project. Field researches and resources acquisition have been done in Japan, Mongolia, main land of China, Taiwan, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, the Philippines, Indonesia and East Timor.
For the purpose of illustrating the impact of militarism against women, we investigated about wars, military regimes and presence of foreign troops in the region, especially about : 1) Women's experiences under the wars such as Korean War, Vietnam War, the conflict between Vietnam and Cambodia, the civil war in Cambodia and the Philippines. 2) Impact of military regimes on women in Thailand, Burma ; Indonesia and Taiwan. 3) Local Women's history around-US military presence in South Korea and Japan, Visiting Forces Agreement between the U.S. and the Philippines, and PKO training facility in Mongolia.
Through the studies, we have brought out the process on which the wars, military regimes, and the presence of foreign troops had institutionalized sexual violence against women and also sex trafficking and sexual exploitation had been set up as well. At the same time, we came out that women in the region were not only passive existence but they actively resisted against that and made efforts to build a social order in which human rights and peace would be achieved.
To open these results, members actively participated in academic conferences and contributed to academic publications. As an organization, we publicized 10 books as Contemporary Women's History in Asia, Translation Series, and annual research journal, Contemporary Women's History in Asia, both in English and Japanese up to 4th issue in 2008.
