Call for Proposals: Community-Based Dispute Resolution & Land Dispute Grant

Given that the majority of people in Myanmar, in common with many other countries, cannot, or do not, use the formal justice system to address their grievances and injustices, MyJustice believes that a rights-based approach to community-based dispute resolution (CBDR) offers the potential to provide forms of access to justice and grievance redress, if developed and delivered sympathetically with the local socio-cultural context(s).

MyJustice seeks a partner organisation to develop a pilot CBDR programme that not only increases the knowledge of the existing CBDR processes within the selected areas in Myanmar but also pilots some approaches to strengthening these in line with a human rights-based approach. In line with the findings from recent research, which clearly indicate that land disputes are a key justice issue in the country, the proposal should focus on mechanisms that deal with land disputes. Interested applicants should review the Call for Proposal and Application Guidance:

Proposals must be submitted electronically to myjustice@mm.britishcouncil.org no later than 1700 hrs (Myanmar time) on Friday, 4 August 2017.MyJustice will accept applications received at any time up to that date.
