Namati

Supporting Paralegal Initiatives in Myanmar 

Partner

  • ThanLwin Thisar 

This programme has two parts. The first part includes Namati providing capacity development support to selected MyJustice partners working on paralegal programmes in Mon and Yangon. The capacity development support will include technical trainings on role of paralegals, skills of paralegals, how to conduct supervision and support paralegals and field visits to see established paralegal programmes. The second part includes supporting a paralegal programme in Shan. Namati, along with its partner ThanLwin Thisar, will train, support, and deploy 15 paralegals across Eastern and Southern Shan who will use legal empowerment tools to support farmers in addressing land rights injustices. Case data will undergird two evidence-based policy briefs advocating for systematic change at the State and National levels.
