This project builds on the success of the partnership between the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the Yangon University of Economics (YUE). The project will include a three-week summer program, extended support for a select number of executive graduate students and teaching staff, and collaboration between UBC faculty and YUE administration to support the development of a Master’s program on Public Policy. Several important components will be added, including additional in-house support to provide training and mentoring on pedagogy, grant writing, research skills, and academic publishing; in-depth methods training to address the requests of the teaching staff and senior graduate students; and knowledge dissemination by Myanmar scholars.
