Research Papers

Htoo, Aung. "In Search of a Constitution for Burma." Burma Lawyers' Council (2002).
Summary: "Constitution can be a strong foundation for every country to be established as a just, free, peaceful and developed society. Burma is in the process of producing a new constitution. By amalgamating lessons from previous historical experiences and current practical situation of the country, it is hoped that a proper constitution for future Burma might be produced." [Author]


Impunity Prolonged: Burma and its 2008 Constitution. New York: International Center for Transitional Justice, 2009.
Summary: "This report focuses on three categories as a means of analyzing the manner in which impunity persists in Burma: Sexual violence, forced labor, and the recruitment and use of child soldiers. Each category is the subject of international conventions that Burma has ratified, therefore raising obligations that the Burmese government must fulfill under international law." [Author]
