MyJustice is pleased to release the full version of Myanmar Justice Survey 2017 (MJS). In 2017 MyJustice conducted the largest statistically significant survey on justice issues in Myanmar. 3,565 people over the age of 18 were randomly selected for the survey from across all regions and states in Myanmar. Myanmar Justice Survey presents the main results of this nationwide survey.
This report documents the lowest, and most used, levels of dispute resolution in communities in two parts of Myanmar – Mon State and Yangon Region. Drawing on interviews and focus group discussions with 600 people, it sets out the common disputes, crimes and injustices that people speak of experiencing, the ways people seek to resolve these issues and why, as well as an assessment of the quality of the justice they are able to achieve.
