Burma Issues (BI) was formed in 1990 as a private non-profit organisation devoted to peacefully addressing Burma's struggle for human rights and democratic rule. BI is unique in that we focus on the marginalized communities living in the war zone of Burma as our target group for building a peace based on justice for everyone. Our approach is based on concepts of empowerment of these marginalized communities. In 2002 the Peace Way Foundation was formed and registered with the Royal Thai Government. It serves as an umbrella organization for Burma Issues and as a link between the grassroots people of Burma and the regional and international community.

Aim: To try and participate in building up a people's movement that is capable of carrying out the long-term struggle necessary to bring a true and lasting peace to Burma

Objectives 1) To systematically document for analysis the events of the past and present through a documentation centre, in order to plan for a better future. This will focus on information for the internal movement and for external supportive campaigns. 2) To build up activists who have a vision for true change in Burma, are responsible and disciplined and are clear in the nature of their commitment for the long term struggle 3) To encourage grassroots people to lead the struggle for social, economic and political change in Burma 4) To build up international awareness and support for the struggle in Burma by acting as a bridge between the grassroots people and the international support community in such a way that the grassroots people help international support groups focus actions on the most critical issues which prolong the country's cycle of war
