I am looking for journalists from Myanmar who want to participate in a project with Swedish media.
The journalists will write articles to Sweden's second biggest daily newspaper about development issues in Myanmar. "Development issues" should be understood broadly, and could include, but is not restricted to, stories about gender equality, policy-making processes, institutional strengthening, macro- and micro-economics, rural development, infrastructure, human rights and law reforms, etc.
Stories can be written in English, as the newspaper has staff who can translate the stories into Swedish. Almost any format is interesting: interviews, commentaries, special features...
One of the main aims is to raise awareness of the social and political situation in Myanmar among Swedish readers, and, also, to connect Swedish and Myanmar journalists with each other.

PS. I am based in Yangon so I could potentially meet with candidates later on.
PS2. Links to previous articles in English and a CV would be good!
