NBC was established as The Norwegian Burma Council at the initiative of a group of Norwegians and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 2 January, 1992 following the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Aung San Suu Kyi in 1991.
The aim of NBC´s work is to achieve a democratic Burma where human rights are respected, and where everybody has equal rights and access to participate and make decisions, regardless of gender, class, ethni or religious belonging or sexual orientation.
NBC aims at developing a strong, democratic and well-organized civil society that can be a driving force for change in Burma, and which can play an active role in the country when democratic changes start taking place.
NBC has three staff members: Director (75%), project coordinator (50%) and
information officer (100%). NBC's board consists of ten members.
