Nyein began its work in 2000. Since it began, Nyein’s mission has been to build a sustainable peace with justice. As such, the Foundation places a priority on achieving an inclusive peace process and emphasizes the central importance of public participation.
Nyein Foundation believes that creating space for the involvement of all will be a great support for forward movement both inside and outside of the formal peace process. Its work for positive inclusion has seen important steps such as the increased involvement by communities in civilian peace support mechanisms.
Nyein is spearheading research and data collection among communities to further ensure the voices of everyone are heard. And it is working for policy change to be more conducive to the potential for peace.
Finally, Nyein Foundation has maintained critical effort in supporting peace negotiation platforms, and we have continued our commitment with a flexible approach to work with all stakeholders in our society to achieve sustainable peace in Myanmar.
