The advent of a new civilian government in Myanmar has raised hopes for fundamental reforms and an end to one of the longest running armed conflicts in the world. TNI’'s Myanmar programme aims to strengthen (ethnic) civil society and political actors in dealing with the challenges brought about by the rapid opening-up of the country, while also working to bring about an inclusive and sustainable peace. TNI has developed unique expertise on Myanmar'’s ethnic regions. In its Myanmar programme TNI's work on agrarian justice, alternative development and a humane drugs policy come together.
