Giving Myanmar's displaced their land back
The Norwegian Refugee Council and Displacement Solutions have produced the report "Addressing Myanmar's Unsettled Restitution Gap" to advocate and help find ways for displaced people in Myanmar to be able to return home and recover their property and possessions.
Connecting those actively working in the peace process with the general public is an important first step to helping more people participate in the critical process of moving Myanmar towards an inclusive peace. With the support of Joint Peace Fund (JPF), the Burma News International (BNI) is organizing “Peace Dialogue” across several States to do just this.
If a peace process is to lead to a peace supported by the entire country, everyone needs to be involved in making it. But often groups, such as people living with disabilities are excluded from this vital national conversation. iSchool-Myanmar is working to change this: with the support of the Joint Peace Fund, it is running a project on peace education for marginalized groups of people in Central Myanmar.

CSO Peace Forum, which have taken place in recent months across the country, have brought together nearly three thousand people from hundreds of different organizations to discuss the peace process. The views and voices being expressed are being captured in policy papers which will help shape the thinking of those attending the Union Peace Conference.
