UNDP Access to Justice and Informal Justice Systems Research in Yangon Region : A Snapshot Study
UNDP Myanmar commissioned a research study on access to justice and informal justice systems in Myanmar in Rakhine State, Kachin State, Shan State and Yangon Region.
This report summaries the data collected from Yangon.
The research was conducted in four urban townships in Yangon. Unlike the study in Rakhine, Kachin and Shan States, the Yangon study took only a quantitative approach, using the same structured interview questionnaire administered at the household level in Rakhine, Kachin and Shan.
Given the specific selection of study sites and respondents, the findings describe only the study sample. Statistically significant comparisons cannot be made among research respondents, and the findings cannot be generalized to any wider population.
