The Foreign and Commonwealth Office continues to prioritise the promotion of democratic values and human rights protection in Burma. We have supported a number of projects, inside the country, in Thailand and in the UK, to work towards this aim. Our embassy in Rangoon currently provides funding for three projects in Burma through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's strategic priority fund on human rights and democracy. The projects help to nurture conditions for democratic transition, through supporting civic empowerment and giving people the skills needed to drive change. We work closely with the British Council and Department for International Development to deliver this work.
