Advocacy and Networking

 Advocacy

Equality Myanmar aims to build up a strong network of organizations and activists across different sectors and levels of Myanmar society. The recent reforms have given way to opportunities for organizations with experience in human rights education to engage more directly with decision makers inside the country at the local, regional and national levels. In cooperation with network partners and external resource persons, EQMM has continued to coordinate and support advocacy efforts that target representatives of state institutions and political decision-makers.  EQMM has strengthened its efforts to provide participatory human rights education while also effectively channeling the concerns and issues from a grassroots level into spheres of authority and duty-holding. EQMM has continued to empower civil society actors to engage with authorities in Myanmar and with UN agencies and international human rights advocates.

INGOs and International Organisations and Embassies

Equality Myanmar provides accurate and up to date human rights information and insights into the climate for HR education and change in Myanmar. Equality Myanmar also works with the EU and German, Swedish, American and Canadian embassies throughout the year to provide the CSO perspective on human rights developments in Myanmar.

Local CSO networking

Equality Myanmar has been actively involved in national CSO movement for human rights.  It  has been working closely with a variety of Local CSOs and NGOs  working inside Myanmar that have started to shift toward including human rights work along with their development service. Equality Myanmar has been particularly active in consultations regarding the Enabling law for Myanmar National Human Rights Commission Law, the Registration Law and the Association by-law.  Equality Myanmar is one of the active organizations in organizing Women Forum, CSO forum and other national conferences.
