Peace Leadership & Research Institute (PLRI) is an institution of higher learning affiliated with the Thabyay Education Foundation. Established in 2018 with the aim to cultivate a culture of responsible leadership and evidence-based decision making in the search for peace and national reconciliation in Myanmar, PLRI offers high quality training in conducting social science research to students and fellows from all over the country and equips them for leadership roles they are expected to play in the peace process.
In collaboration with national and international experts, including practitioners, leadership coaches, and leading academics in the peacebuilding sector, the PLRI provides this year-long, highly intensive and academically rigorous training to equip emerging leaders in Myanmar to make significant advances for peace.
PLRI is very thankful to its international partners:
The Joint Peace Fund provides core and critical funding for the Graduate Research Diploma in Peace Studies Program, including support for venue and key staff members.
Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, through its office in Myanmar, provides international experts for thematic seminars, small research grants that enable fellows to conduct their field research and support for the printing of fellows' research work.
