    Scraps of Hope in Banda Aceh examines the rebuilding of the city of Banda Aceh in Indonesia in the aftermath of the celebrated Helsinki-based peace mediation process, thirty years of armed conflict, and the tsunami. Offering a critical contribution to the study of post-conflict politics, the book includes 14 documentary videos reflecting individuals’ experiences on rebuilding the city and following the everyday lives of people in Banda Aceh.

    Marjaana Jauhola mirrors the peace-making process from the perspective of the ‘outcast’ and invisible, challenging the selective narrative and ideals of the peace as a success story. Jauhola provides alternative ways to reflect the peace dialogue using ethnographic and film documentarist storytelling.

    Scraps of Hope in Banda Aceh tells a story of layered exiles and displacement, revealing hidden narratives of violence and grief while exposing struggles over gendered expectations of being good and respectable women and men. It brings to light the multiple ways of arranging lives and forming caring relationships outside the normative notions of nuclear family and home, and offers insights into the relations of power and violence that are embedded in the peace.

    Marjaana Jauhola is senior lecturer and head of discipline of Global Development Studies at the University of Helsinki. Her research focuses on co-creative research methodologies, urban and visual ethnography with an eye on feminisms, as well as global politics of conflict and disaster recovery in South and Southeast Asia.

      Kirja-arvio: Banda Acehin arki muodollisen rauhanprosessin jälkeen

      Anitta Kynsilehto

      Tiivistä kuvausta hyödyntäen Jauhola tarjoaa lukijalle elämänmakuisen matkan Indonesian Banda Acehin kaupunkiin. Tiiviin kuvauksen tekniikoilla tutkija ei vain kerro tilanteista ja tapahtumista vaan sijoittaa ne kontekstiinsa ja tulkitsee tilanteita osallistujien tunteet ja moninaiset suhteet huomioiden. Etnografiset havaintonsa Jauhola on koonnut paitsi kirjan muotoon, myös dokumenttifilmeiksi yhdessä tutkimuksen osallistujien kanssa.

      Tapa tehdä tutkimusta yhdessä tutkimuskumppanien kanssa on ollut nouseva trendi erityisesti dekoloniaalisista lähestymistavoista ammentavissa suuntauksissa yhteiskuntatieteissä. Näiden lähestymistapojen pääajatuksena on purkaa globaaleja ja paikallisia hierarkioita liittyen tiedontuotantoon. Ne kysyvät, kenen tiedolla on väliä, millä tavoin tutkimustuloksiin päästään ja kenelle tutkimuksesta on hyötyä. Kuvaaminen auttaa tuomaan esiin kenttätutkimuksen moninaista todellisuutta ja osallistujien näkökulmia eri tavoilla kuin pelkkää tekstiä ja pysäytettyä kuvaa hyödyntävät tutkimusraportit.
