Thematic Priority: Rule of Law - တရားဥပေဒ စိုးမိုးေရး

Thematic Priority – Rule of Law

The rule of law remains weak in Myanmar, with repressive laws in effect, a judiciary that is neither independent nor effective, local governance and security services that are still under the control of the military through the Ministry of Home Affairs, and restrictions on fundamental freedoms of expression, association, assembly, religion and belief. Thus, justice and accountability for human rights violations is often elusive, and rights-based civil society remains at risk of persecution. Many of these problems are structural and deep-rooted, allowing impunity to continue. We advocate for an enabling environment whereby human rights defenders and activists can work freely towards developing an open, just and tolerant society, whereby people’s fundamental rights, whether through practising a religion of their choice or engaging in peaceful protest against injustice, are respected and protected.

Progressive Voice has produced a number of reports under the thematic priority – Rule of Law. The reports can be found at the bottom of this thematic priority areas.
