The USAID Promoting Rule of Law in Myanmar (PRLM) Activity, implemented by Chemonics International, is inviting grantees for implementation of research to better understand the obstacles to justice faced by the people of Myanmar, and to identify practical solutions for addressing these challenges for the government, members of civil society, and donors.
Applicants are encouraged to propose innovative research ideas that go beyond desk research and make an original contribution to the field. The scope of the research projects may be nationwide, however PRLM anticipates that at least two of the grants will be awarded for research projects that focus on conflict affected areas in Kayin, Kachin, and/or Shan States.
