November / December, 2021
DTP is committed to supporting those advocating for human rights and democracy in Myanmar and working with the NUG Representative Office - Australia. This program was launched in solidarity with those working for human rights, peace and democracy in Myanmar. It was intended to be a practical contribution to their work at this time of human rights and humanitarian crisis in Myanmar. Military repression has made peaceful advocacy in Myanmar difficult and dangerous. There is a need to step up human rights advocacy by those outside Myanmar.
This program aimed to bring members of the Myanmar diaspora community together and build their capacity to engage more effectively with international human rights mechanisms, international organisations, the Australian government, media, and other stakeholders to address the growing human rights crisis in Myanmar.
Because of COVID, Phase I of this program took place online. Participants had the opportunity to network with and learn from each other through practical exercises, and to build on their current experience by working with DTP’s expert resource people.
