Myanmar Institute for Peace and Security

The Myanmar Institute for Peace and Security (MIPS) is a non-governmental, non-partisan “think-and-do-tank” providing principal stakeholders with the insight needed to navigate the opportunities and challenges of the ongoing peace and security transition in Myanmar.

Our primary areas of focus include:

  1. Federalism and Constitutional Reform
  2. Security Dialogue in the Peace Process
  3. Conflict Monitoring and Analysis
  4. Peacebuilding and Development

Vision

In our vision, MIPS operates as an independent, non-partisan, national-led, policy research organization that enjoys the confidence of the country’s peace and security stakeholders in the process of facilitating policy-making and implementation related to the peace and security transition in Myanmar.

 

Goal

To achieve a peaceful transition to a democratic and federal union.

 

Objective

The overall objective of MIPS is to support the peace process and the security sector transformation in a manner that conforms to democratic norms, consolidates the peace process, and fosters national reconciliation among the country’s numerous ethnic and political groups.

 

How We Operate

MIPS operates on the basis of four broad principles:

First, MIPS functions as an independent professional platform;

Second, the work of MIPS is practical and problem-driven in orientation, rather than academic, in order to ensure that its outputs (both research and policy advice) are accessible to all engaged in Myanmar’s peace and security transformation;

Third, MIPS adopts an inclusive approach. It seeks to engage with the full range of relevant stakeholders and narrow the current gap among civilians, the military, and EAOs by bringing all sides together in a pragmatic and rigorous policy debate about peace and security matters; and

Fourth, MIPS maintains a focus on learning by doing. Rather than out-sourcing activities to external experts, we carry out as much work as possible in-house (with external mentoring as necessary) and draw on experience from other countries to stimulate consideration of alternative security and justice arrangements that might better serve the people of Myanmar.
