Foundations of justice training in Myanmar

29 Jan 2018

In recent years, civil society has played an increasingly important role in strengthening public legal awareness and advocating for access to justice in Myanmar. However, civil society is constrained by a limited understanding of the role of the legal system. Capacity development to enhance the knowledge and skills of civil society actors, as well as state accountability, remains a key priority.

IDLO is partnering with MyJustice, a program funded by the European Union and implemented by the British Council, to build the capacity of civil society actors. The project seeks to strengthen MyJustice civil society actors’ understanding of the role of the law to improve access to justice and legal aid for poor and vulnerable communities in Myanmar.
