ANFREL-Foundation initiative to create awareness about parliamentary democracy in Myanmar
In order to create awareness about the functioning of a parliament amongst the people of Burma/Myanmar an initiative titled, Training and Parliament Education (TAPE)-Myanmar has been started in the country since February 2013. The implementation of the project follows two years of research, assessments and resource mapping. Several activities have been undertaken since February 2013. The project has already successfully observed the sixth regular session of the Parliament (Amyotha Hluttaw, Pyithu Hluttaw and the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw) and is currently documenting the proceedings of the seventh regular session of parliament. A local team has been trained over a period of time to document parliamentary proceedings and initiate dialogues with Member of Parliaments (MPs) on various issues concerning the development of the country and its people, protection of the rights of citizens and the work undertaken to promote democratic values. Recently trainings were held with expertise from India and the Philippines to streamline the process of documentation and dissemination of information regarding parliamentary proceedings using standard formats.
