  • Introduction


The Denmark-Myanmar Programme on Rule of Law and Human Rights (2016-2020) supports the Union Attorney General’s Office (UAGO), the Office of the Supreme Court of the Union (OSCU), lawyers, CSOs as well as the law departments of Dagon and East Yangon Universities in strengthening capacities on core aspects of rule of law and human rights and supporting reform in relevant areas. The programme, which has a total grant of DKK 70 million (approximately USD 10 million), is based on participatory approaches supporting partners to identify their own needs and priorities, and take a lead in the implementation of activities.


The governance of the programme is based on joint decision-making with partners through co-chaired Steering Committees. The programme is part of the Denmark-Myanmar Country Programme (2016-2020) endorsed by a bilateral government-to-government agreement between Myanmar and Denmark as well as MoUs with all key stakeholders. A Joint Venture comprised of the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) has been contracted to provide technical assistance to the programme through a team of experts supporting implementation.



  • Scope of work


The Denmark-Myanmar Programme works with the Office of the Supreme Court of the Union (OSCU) in order to support their reform efforts to assert the independence and accountability of the judiciary, and to strengthen their internal capacity.
