Women’s experiences, roles and influence in Community Based Dispute Resolution and Mediation in Myanmar


MyJustice’s partner, Mercy Corps, implements programmes to strengthen the mediation skills of civil society leaders, religious leaders, ethnic leaders and government officials and has recognised that, despite progress over the last five years, under­standing of women’s experiences, roles and influence in CBDRM has been limited and an improved understand­ing will help adapt their programmes to ensure fair outcomes for all women and men. The overall objective of this study is to contribute to the evidence base on gender and CBDRM in Myanmar, so that women’s experiences and perceptions, and a better understanding of women’s roles and influence, can better inform programme design and implementation.
