In Burma, civil society is innovating in dire circumstances while preserving hope in the future. The country has long suffered under military dictatorships and civil war. But since the military initiated a coup in 2021, systematic human rights abuses and mass displacement have only gotten worse. For 30 years, Inter Pares has worked with local organizations toward a democratic future for Burma. In this Bulletin, we share a small sample of our more than 40 local counterparts’ tireless work.
Inter Pares is located on the unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Omàmiwinini. Our community is spread across the Indigenous lands currently known as Canada. As part of our commitment to decolonization, we build relationships with Indigenous-led movements and foster connections between Indigenous communities in Canada and internationally.
