The Karenni Social Development Centre (SDC) works to protect the environment in rural Eastern Myanmar and promote the human rights of the Karenni people – in Myanmar and in refugee camps in Thailand. It teaches students non-violent skills to help build a new society and to develop the rule of law in Myanmar. Network Spotlights are short profile articles focusing on members of the Global Legal Empowerment Network. Spotlight articles use case studies and ‘key lessons’ to provide insights into the work of network members. Whether you are working in the same country, with similar issues or want to understand new legal empowerment approaches, the Network Spotlight is a useful learning resource.
