This project aims to support peacebuilding initiatives in Myanmar that lead to the establishment of sustainable, inclusive peace agreements and a reduction in violent conflicts between armed actors. Project activities include: (1) consulting with a broad range of civil society stakeholders to gather perspectives and ideas on Myanmar’s conflict landscape, drivers of violence experienced by women and men, and visions for future peacebuilding initiatives (2) consulting local and international conflict and peacebuilding analysts, practitioners, specialists and academics to review key findings from background notes and civil society consultation, informing the development of summary output and final briefing material and (3) reviewing background note on past conflict and peacebuilding funding support including actionable recommendations/guidance aimed at international actors involved in future peace support in Myanmar. Myanmar will benefit from engagement with established and experienced local organizations and grassroots groups.
