The Security Dialogue program supports negotiators at the Union Peace Conference with research on comparative security arrangements in international peace processes, including international experiences in Security Sector Development (SSD) and Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration (DDR), to contextualize lessons for Myanmar’s peace and security transition. MIPS is also conducting research on international examples of federal security systems and arrangements. In addition to providing technical input to negotiators engaged in security dialogue, MIPS will develop practical options for decisionmakers tackling security issues and help stakeholders avoid deadlock. Projects are supported by the Joint Peace Fund and Open Society Foundation Myanmar. The initiative is led by Dr. Min Zaw Oo and Amara Thiha and supported by Pan Ei Phyu and Thin Thin Lay.
