Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) – Burma Conflict-Related Sexual Violence

The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) announces an open competition for organizations interested in submitting applications for projects that strengthen civil society efforts to investigate and document conflictrelated sexual violence (CRSV) in Burma for the purposes of pursuing justice for victims and survivors, and accountability for crimes committed in violation of international human rights and humanitarian law.

The project will seek to achieve the following desired outcomes :

  • Increased capacity of Burmese civil society to credibly and professionally investigate and document CRSV while prioritizing survivors’ active and informed consent, privacy, agency, and physical and emotional safety
  • Greater engagement of and coordination with survivors and the families of survivors of human rights violations, especially CRSV, in local, national, regional and international accountability, reconciliation and advocacy efforts
  • Effective engagement by and collaboration among key and diverse stakeholders who have a demonstrated commitment to CRSV documentation utilizing a range of transitional justice tools to address past and ongoing CRSV
  • Increased coordination and information sharing between civil society and the Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar (IIMM) and among civil society inside and outside of Burma working to advance accountability
  • Strengthened accountability initiatives for human rights violations committed in Burma, including investigations and prosecutions of atrocity crimes in available jurisdictions
  • Longerterm planning for the preservation and use of collected information for current and future transitional justice efforts on behalf of victims and survivors and through integration of survivors and their families into such efforts
  • Strengthened resilience and support for civil society, human rights defenders, and survivors and their families involved in documentation and advocacy on CRSV, including access to psychosocial, digital and physical safety, and other protective services and assistance
  • Integrated, locally owned, and victim and survivorcentered approaches to documenting CRSV alongside efforts to address survivors’ immediate needs around truth, justice, and psychosocial support

Eligible Applicants :

DRL welcomes applications from U.S.based and foreignbased nonprofit organizations/nongovernment organizations (NGO) and public international organizations; private, public, or state institutions of higher education; and forprofit organizations or businesses.
