With the support of the Joint Coordination Committee on Hluttaw Development (JCC) and the three Hluttaws at Union level, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) have completed the ‘Survey of Myanmar Members of Parliament: Reflections from the Second Hluttaw’. This report is the result of long-term research with Members of Parliament (MPs) in Myanmar during the current term of the Union level Hluttaws which began in 2016 and will end in early 2021. The report provides evidence-based insights on the roles, functions and practices of Union level MPs to help support the strategic direction and institutional development agendas of the Hluttaws. It is based on interviews and focus groups with 63 MPs, and a questionnaire responded to by 394 MPs. The report complements a Survey of Members of the First Hluttaw conducted by UNDP/IPU in 2015, tracking progress from the first Hluttaw to the second. The findings can help embed and share effective practice by elected representatives in a new democracy.
