Project overview

Together with other implementing partners of the EU project, DCAF was mandated from 2013 to 2015 to support local stakeholders in their efforts to develop a future vision of the Myanmar Police Force (MPF), to review the MPF’s legal framework and to strengthen parliamentary accountability of the MPF. From December 2015 to March 2016, DCAF joined a UK-funded project to continue and consolidate results from this work beyond the November 2015 national elections.

In March 2017, DCAF joined the 5-year follow-up EU project and became responsible for supporting the development of a police reform strategy and relevant guiding documents, including on internal accountability, by supporting the review of existing laws and crafting a modernised legal framework on policing, and improving the capacity of the Myanmar Parliament to oversee the MPF.
