IDEA MyConstitution


The 2008 Constitution remains one of the key aspects of negotiation within the peace process and future reforms will be necessary to transition from military to democratic rule. Through MyConstitution project IDEA will facilitate stakeholders’ access to a platform and framework to discuss options for formal constitutional change and raise state and non-state actors’ awareness of the potential for decentralization and democratization within the framework of the existing Constitution. International IDEA will also facilitate its Myanmar partners’ access to constitutional tools for use in the peace and democratization processes, as well as their understanding and utilization of the potential of Myanmar’s 2008 Constitution for greater democratization and decentralization. Partners include civil society, parties in the peace process, and state institutions such as the Parliament, Union Attorney General’s Office and the Supreme Court of the Union. In the second phase of the project lessons learned from the first phase will be used to expand the capacity building to new actors.
