The project will counter hate speech and disinformation while promoting peaceful and credible elections in 2020 and beyond the election period, and strengthen critical technical aspects of the electoral process to safeguard diversity, inclusivity, and gender equality to reduce the risk of community grievances becoming a trigger for hate speech and tensions. The project will also support the setting up of a multi-stakeholder platform to bring a variety of key national stakeholders, such as media and social influencers together to set strategic directions and lead action on promoting diversity, inclusivity and non-discrimination in Myanmar.
