Burma/Myanmar: Good Governance
Since the end of the military junta, independent civil society initiatives have been developing rapidly around the country. While the current civilian government maintains a considerable amount of control over the society, it has introduced a number of liberal reforms that has allowed for non-governmental organizations’ activities.
Activities of these groups are fundamental for the country's shift towards democracy. Civil society is made up of groups and institutions that are independent of the state and represent the often marginalized voices of women, students, farmers, environmentalists and others.
