Supporting the Development of Localised Approaches in Rakhine State

Danish Refugee Council, Myanmar

 

Rakhine state is a challenging cotext for civil society, and in particular for local actors; the Rakhine are a marginalised group within Myanmar, the Rohingya are both a religious and an ethnic minority, and exisiting civil society consists of very small local actors, often with strong community ties but limited understading of principles of assistance. The project, conducted in the aftermath of the coup, included a review of the ethical issues associated with localisation as well as the proposal of a new approach to engaging with local actors.
