International IDEA Myanmar (International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance) announced on June 20 that its program titled “MyConstitution” has been supported by its existing partners, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and its recent partners, the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Finland and Sweden.

MyConstitution is established to support stable and inclusive peace and democracy in Myanmar. The program attempts to assist Myanmar’s state and non-state actors in building knowledge toward constitution and the way to implement their knowledge effectively by organizing workshops and trainings, advisory support, and written analysis on constitutional issues.

Sweden-headquartered, International IDEA is an intergovernmental organization aiming to support and strengthen democratic institutions and processes around the world. It was established in Myanmar in 2012 and has been working collaboratively with democratic stakeholders in Myanmar to strengthen Myanmar’s expertise on constitution building with a view to building a home-grown, well-informed, and inclusive constitutional culture.
