DCAF contributes to conflict prevention and peacebuilding of Myanmar by partnering with its sister centre, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), to offer a pragmatic and policy-focused training course for Myanmar government officials, parliamentarians, members of former ethnic armed organisations and CSO members. Already in its fifth annual iteration, this course performs an essential function in bringing together a broad and mixed constituency around a common table to discuss shared stakes in the country’s transition towards democracy, rule of law and the provision of human security.
It offers participants not only the chance to learn, but also the chance to network in Geneva and in Myanmar with an alumni network of like-minded national stakeholders on key reform topics, such as the functioning of political systems, political decentralisation, good governance, security sector governance and reform, human rights, transitional justice and intercultural awareness.
