ALTSEAN-Burma (Alternative ASEAN Network on Burma) is a Bangkok-based network of organizations and individuals based in ASEAN member states working to support the movement for human rights and democracy in Burma (also known as Myanmar) through research, advocacy, campaigns, and capacity building. The network is comprised of human rights and social justice non-governmental organizations (NGOs), political parties, think tanks, academics, journalists, and student activists.

It was formed at the conclusion of the Alternative ASEAN Meeting on Burma held at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok in October 1996. ALTSEAN-Burma's coordinator is Debbie Stothard.


ALTSEAN-Burma works with the democracy movement and its supporters to produce resources and create opportunities for:

- Building and strengthening strategic relationships among key networks and organisations from Burma, ASEAN, and the international community.

- Implementing innovative strategies that are responsive to emerging needs and urgent developments.

- Inspiring and building confidence for empowerment among activists, particularly women, youth, and all ethnic groups of Burma.
