As part of the European Union's support for democratic transition in Myanmar, CIVIPOL is participating in a project to support the reform of the Burmese police.

The main responsibility of the expert will be to coordinate the development of a set of training and activities (study visit, workshops, conferences, etc.) for officers of the CID (Criminal Investigation Department).

The actions to be implemented include crime scene management, the fight against human beings trafficking, interrogation techniques, violence against women, forensic police, and cooperation between police and other judicial actors. Particular attention will be devoted to gender issues in the activities carried out.

Finally, areas of cooperation will be developed with other actors, both national and international, involved in security sector reform in Myanmar.
