This report explores the changes to the everyday lives of the people of Myanmar following the 2021 coup. What are the socioeconomic impacts on them, the security issues and the administration mechanisms at the local level since the military staged a coup on 1st February 2021? This report addresses this question and also examines the knowledge, trust and attitudes that people have regarding the organizations established following the coup, namely, the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) (a committee comprised of democratically elected representatives ousted by the military coup); the National Unity Government (NUG) (the civilian government in exile that was formed in opposition to military rule); and the Federal Army (the armed wing of the NUG). On the other hand, how much trust do people have in the Tatmadaw – the Armed forces that seized power in the February coup? The opinions that people have about the future of Myanmar are also summarised in this report.
