Two Canadian organizations will support emerging researchers from ethnic Myanmar communities to strengthen their capacity for research and advocacy using digital tools safely and focusing on issues such as misinformation, online gender-based violence and ethnicity and alliance-building initiatives. The SecDev Foundation will commission and call for small research projects and the Centre for Law and Democracy will offer expertise on issues such as freedom of expression and digital rights standards under international human rights law.
