Information Strategies for Societies in Transition

The Information Strategies for Societies in Transition program builds capacity across sectors in Myanmar through a leadership development program, a Myanmar Information Lab in Yangon, information literacy outreach through public libraries, and projects to support the 2015 elections and the peacebuilding process. The program has three major components: (1) creating a professional network of mid-career professionals from civil society, political parties, the media, government ministries, and think tanks; (2) establishing the Myanmar Information Laboratory (MIL) in Yangon to facilitate the expansion of the professional network and general informational capacity building; and (3) to serve as a focal point for projects focused on tackling digital and information challenges in Myanmar.
