Jenny Munro

Jenny Munro is an anthropologist who has worked on gender, health and sexuality in Indonesia since 2003. Her 2018 book, Dreams Made Small, explores the racialisation of education in West Papua, while her more recent research activity focuses on how racism affects health care.

In the case of West Papua, racism is not only perpetrated in openly violent forms by the police or military but is also ingrained in structures and assumptions that benefit Indonesians, as well as foreigners, writes Dr Jenny Munro.
