The purpose of this glossary is to serve as a starting point for public discussion on democratic terms in Myanmar.

Based on extensive consultations with experts, it aims to provide clear, accessible and value-neutral explanations of terms relevant to Myanmar’s transition to democracy.

International IDEA and the Local Resource Centre welcome suggestions for additional terms and changes of current explanations via the website <www.democraticglossary.org.mm>
