Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) Burma: Supporting Inclusive Civic Awareness and Engagement across Diverse Communities Solicitation
Statements of Interest (SOI) should be for programs that support the policy objective to strengthen democratic transition in Burma and promote inclusive respect for human rights. DRL seeks SOIs that contribute to the development of civic mindedness across Burma’s diverse communities, including tolerance for the expression of differing political views. DRL’s objective is to promote a diverse, multi-ethnic and multi-religious society in Burma that respects the rights of all people. Having a culture of participation and respect for human rights, in part, comes from a strong understanding of citizens’ role in democratic processes – both at an individual and community level. An informed and active citizenry is a core element of any functioning democracy.
Successful applicants will identify opportunities to build societal tolerance towards different ethnic, religious and social groups, and the expression of diverse perspectives.
