Data for democracy

Myanmar's move to fact-based decision-making

Data for democracy is a coalition to bring fact-based decision-making to Myanmar's re-emerging civil society.

December 2017: Along with millions around the world, we have been following with heavy hearts the recent violence and human tragedy taking place in Rakhine state. As the work of TASCHA and its coalition partners does not directly engage with the displaced populations or military-led government ministries, we will continue to support our partners in Myanmar as they progress toward a more transparent, free, and safe society.
