Led by Stein Tønnesson
Mar 2013 - Dec 2013
The project “Elections and Violence: The Role of the Upcoming 2015 Elections in Myanmar’s Peace Process” has two primary objectives.  These are to firstly, pinpoint risks and opportunities for Myanmar’s peace process in relation to the upcoming national and regional elections in 2015 and secondly, engage stakeholders in Myanmar’s peace process in reflecting upon these risks and opportunities. The main event will be a conference in Myanmar for international scholars and stakeholders in the peace process entitled “Elections and Peace: Democratic Transitions in Ethnically Diverse Societies”. The conference will be organized in collaboration with the Myanmar Peace Centre.
