Sharing the Experiences of the Hungarian Political Transition with Myanmar
June 2013 - September 2013

With the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, the project aims at organizing a study trip for leading politicians from Burma/Myanmar in Budapest. The one week-long training focuses on sharing and interpreting the relevant Hungarian experiences with and providing a thorough overview of the transition process for the participants, along with presenting good practices, especially on the parliamentary decision-making process.

The changes that have swept Burma in the past three years include some remarkable transformations. The Burmese officials have expressed their willingness to cooperate with Hungarian organizations to share their experience on the political transition process. The country is of strategic importance for the Hungarian foreign policy, and transmitting the lessons learned in the cooperation could further enhance the representation of the interests of both the ICDT and the Hungarian foreign policy in the region.

Project Description
During their one week-long visit to Hungary, the delegates of the Burmese political parties take part in academic sessions and also meet key figures of the Hungarian democratic transition, including representatives of the economic sector and non-governmental organizations.

A handbook will also be prepared and published for the delegates on the Hungarian parliamentary decision-making process.
