Liberty and Leadership Forum

Ye Myint Win is a civil society leader focusing on youth education.

In 2007, following the Saffron Revolution, he established the organization Youth for Social Change Myanmar (YSCM), based in Mandalay and served as executive director until October 2013.

Under his leadership, YSCM became a professional service provider for youth who need assistance and support. Initially, the YSCM focused on developing analytical skills and critical thinking among youth and students by promoting a model of co-learning and self-education. Later, YSCM turned its attention to civic education and human rights education in order to respond to issues concerning the 2008 constitutional referendum and 2010 election in Burma. Since 2010, YSCM has provided educational forums and conferences focused on issues of civil society, human rights, peace, and education.

In 2013, Ye Myint Win received a scholarship from the Norwegian government to implement a project called “Capacity Building for Institutes in Myanmar."

He is working towards a Master of Arts in human rights at the Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand.
