UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, the empowerment of women and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

UN Women is mandated to lead the UN system-wide coordination of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda, as elaborated inter-alia through UN Security Council resolutions—1325, 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, 2122, 2242, 2467, and 2493.

Mapping of existing access to justice and legal aid services programs/projects for women and girls in the current context in Myanmar
Myanmar is socially and politically complex in nature and when it comes to disputes and legal issues, people choose either formal or informal mechanisms depending on their cultural and/or religious background, geographic area, type of legal issues they have, and the legal mechanism available to them. According to research conducted in Myanmar, most people prefer informal justice systems or dispute settlement mechanisms, which they find more accessible, affordable, and reliable than the formal one which in contrast is too costly, time-consuming, and unfamiliar for them.
A number of issues that disproportionately impact women and girls, including domestic violence and gender-based violence, remain chronically underreported due to entrenched practices of discriminations by their communities. This results in the justice needs of women and girls going unmet, either through formal or informal mechanisms. Under the current crisis, women and girls find it even more challenging to claim justice due to ambiguity in and limitation of functioning of legal mechanisms.
Many legal aid services projects/initiatives supported by international agencies and donors under the rule of law and access to justice programs have been implemented to address challenges, gaps, and barriers to justice. These initiatives focus mainly on 1) legal awareness raising in community, 2) capacity building support and trainings for formal and informal legal actors, paralegals & CSOs, and 3) provision of legal aid and referral services through legal clinics or justice centers. A number of studies have been carried out in relation to justice and legal services, as well as identifying gaps and challenges of services providers and of justice seekers for improving access and services.
This research will focus on mapping existing programs/projects supported by the international community/international agencies in relation to access to justice and legal aid for women and girls. The research will identify gaps in current programming and explore opportunities for scaling up of activities focusing specifically on women’s access to justice and legal aid for women and girls in Myanmar.
