Policy Brief: Streamlining Institutions to Restore Land and Justice to Farmers in Myanmar [Burmese Version]

Over 400,000 acres of land in Myanmar, that was taken by the military, government, and private companies between the 1980s and early 2000s, has reportedly been released since 2013. However, this does not mean that the land has been returned to the farmers whose livelihoods were displaced by these land acquisitions. Namati offers this brief to emphasize the need for the government to also put in place simple, transparent mechanisms to ensure that land and justice is restored to those farmers and communities who were dispossessed of their livelihoods without due process or compensation.

Note: this brief is in Burmese. An English language version is available here.
