The peace process now unfolding in Myanmar after decades of ethnic insurgency has opened the space for civil society advocates to join the national discourse. As a result, IFES’ program in the country, implemented under USAID’s Global Women’s Leadership Fund, aims to build the capacity of women’s groups and women who are grassroots leaders to help them feel confident and empowered to partake in the transitional processes and advocate for their specific priorities. The images in this gallery show a three-day training and one-day policy dialogue implemented by IFES and the Yangon School of Political Science (YSPS) in December 2012.
