Saferworld has operated in Myanmar since 2012 and opened an office in 2015. We work with civil society partners to improve community security and we advocate for conflict-sensitive and gender-sensitive reform in security and justice governance. We also work with civil society organisations to promote community-led approaches to conflict sensitivity that empower communities to challenge international development partners and foreign investors to be more responsive to community needs.
In Myanmar we are working on:
Inclusive approaches to security and justice reform – to create safer communities we work with civil society partners on security and justice governance and community security.
Gender, peace and security – we conduct research on the impact of insecurity, injustice and conflict on gender dynamics, and we address gender norms that perpetuate violence.
Conflict sensitive approaches – we promote community-led approaches to conflict sensitivity that aim to make development and investment responsive to community needs.
