This project will support training and mentoring for emerging professionals, mostly women, who have worked in government and/or non-governmental organizations, are pursuing or have completed a graduate degree on public policy, public administration, or other relevant social science, and are aiming to improve their capacity for policy analysis.

Senior faculty from universities in Thailand (the Asian Institute of Technology and Chiang Mai University), Canada (the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning-McGill University and the University of British Columbia), and the U.S. (University of Southern California) will strengthen the capacity of more than 150 young professionals and faculty from across Myanmar. The training will be focused on practical, hands-on tools in policy analysis rooted in the social sciences, and will include training in gender research, social policy, economic development policy, and public policy and political economy. The university partners will also provide continued mentoring through the supervision of individual policy research projects.
