Three students have been awarded MRLG-funded scholarships to participate in a new specialisation in land issues at Chiang Mai University.

The course is part of the International Master’s Program in Social Sciences (Development Studies), and will help students train as researchers and administrators in the field of land governance in the Mekong Region.

Ms Maw Thoe Myar (25, Myanmar) plans to examine the land governance of relocation projects concerning internally-displaced Karen groups, as organised through the peace-building exercises of the national government and the Karenni Progressive Party.

Mr Nyein Han Tun (37, Myanmar) is interested in studying the negotiation of ethnic-based land ownership conflicts in North-east Myanmar.
Ms Chau my Duyen (25, Viet Nam) proposes to investigate the impact of forest land allocation policy upon the rights and responsibilities of land users.

The scholarships are funded by the Mekong Region Land Governance project, with technical assistance provided by the Mekong Land Research Forum at the Regional Centre for Social Science and Sustainable Development, Chiang Mai University.
