Aug 4, 2017 Changing World Politics Patrick Meehan T.notes

Ritorno in Myanmar

Aug 2, 2017 Changing World Politics RISE

A distanza di diciotto mesi, RISE ritorna in Myanmar. Lo fa con un numero doppio rispetto alle solite dimensioni della rivista, un riflesso del particolare interesse di ricerca che T.wai nutre per questo Paese del Sud-est asiatico. Avevamo lasciato il Myanmar subito dopo le elezioni del novembre 2015, e da allora molte cose sono cambiate. Come avviene in tutti i casi in cui le attese quasi messianiche si scontrano con la dura realtà dei fatti – non solo permangono alcune criticità ereditate dal regime precedente, ma l’azione di governo ha paradossalmente esacerbato alcune tensioni storicamente presenti nel Paese, soprattutto nelle aree periferiche. Questo numero di RISE dedica quindi un’intera sezione alle Borderlands, poiché è nel rapporto tra centro e periferia che si gioca il futuro del Myanmar.

Fine-tuning Myanmar’s so-called ‟ethnic conflict”: a side note to the 21st Century Panglong Conference

Jul 28, 2017 Changing World Politics Karin Dean T.notes

The 21st Century Panglong Union Peace Conference attests to the most contemporary relevance of the country’s historic planning by exploiting the name Panglong in its title. Yet, what this will entail for the future of ethnic nationalities in contemporary Myanmar is still unclear.

Can the NLD claim the high ground?

Jul 25, 2017 Changing World Politics Nicholas Farrelly T.notes

Since the National League for Democracy's landslide November 2015 election victory, discussions on Myanmar's future have taken an interesting turn. Once again, Aung San Suu Kyi is confronted with challenges that could potentially jeopardize her moral and political authority.

Why Myanmar’s ethnic minorities lose faith in federalism and peace

Jun 29, 2017 Changing World Politics David Brenner T.notes

For years, most of Myanmar’s ethnic minorities, including the Kachin, have put their faith in Aung San Suu Kyi to reconcile the country. Her landslide victory in the country’s historic 2015 elections, was not least secured through the support from ethnic minority voters. As armed conflict has continued and even intensied since Aung San Suu Kyi’s rise to power, many of these erstwhile supporters feel betrayed.
