We are developing knowledge resources, promoting institutional development and facilitating inclusive and informed dialogue about democratic reform options in Myanmar. 

As part of the European Union-funded project Support to Electoral Processes and Democracy (STEP Democracy), International IDEA Myanmar has worked with the Union Election Commission (UEC) in support of peaceful, transparent and credible elections in Myanmar. Highlights include the development of a system and regulations to accredit election observers.

In 2015, more than 12,000 observers were accredited, animated voter education videos were produced, knowledge products were produced and disseminated, and an Election Risk Management Unit was established within the UEC. Following decades of military rule and local armed conflicts, the 2015 elections represented a significant turning point for Myanmar, which is now undergoing its democratic transition.
