Research Papers

Trivedi, Sonu. "Contemporary Myanmar: Challenges to Political Process and Reconciliation," Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (2013).

Summary: "This paper outlines the political reforms and reconciliation process presently underway in Myanmar and the challenges posed to it. A detailed analysis of changing power dynamics in Myanmar, and the relationship between NLD leader and head of Opposition, Aung San Suu Kyi, and the military has been elucidated." [Author]

Dapice, David. "Myanmar: Negotiating Nation Building, A Path to Unity and Progress,"  Harvard Kennedy School: ASH Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation (2012).
Summary: "There is an immense challenge facing the leadership in Myanmar. They have to negotiate a nation and to reform the basic assumptions and processes that have ruled for the past decades. They need to make the new system more representative, more inclusive, less favorable to a narrow group of businessmen and government or army officials, and more broadly successful." [Author]
Kramer, Tom. "Ending 50 Years of Military Rule: Prospects for Peace, Democracy and Development in Burma," Norwegian Peacebuilding Ressource Center (2012).
Summary: Burma has been under military rule since 1962. However, in 2011 a new political system was introduced and a new military-backed government inaugurated that has reached out to the democratic opposition and armed ethnic opposition groups seeking more autonomy. Both of these groups reject the new constitution, which seeks to entrench the army’s power.
