While Myanmar democracy is awakening, civil society has a core role to play. Very active, Myanmar civil society has shown his strong will to contribute to the success of the upcoming elections, which are expected to mark a decisive step ahead in the current transition process.

France has been supporting the democratic process in Myanmar for a long period of time, working closely with civil society but also with the authorities, and has now decided to provide a substantial support in favor of “citizen initiatives” related to elections, under the overall objective of “bringing people together for credible and inclusive Myanmar 2015 elections”.

13 projects have been selected in the field of civic and voter education, media capacity improvement or electoral monitoring, with a cross cutting objective of women and marginalized population’s inclusion.
