Bergman, Oscar  and Mälarstedt, Andreas. "Assessment of EU Policy on Burma," Institute for Security & Development Policy (2010). 
Summary: "A sensible Burma policy for the EU is one that focuses on the amelioration of the ills that beset the Burmese people and leads to a situation where they are treated with increasing decency by their government. There are no easy answers but one thing is certain: fresh thinking is required in Brussels." [Author]
Frittin, Agnes and Swanström, Niklas. "European Sanctions Against Myanmar," Sweden: Institute for Security and Development Policy (2010). 
Summary: "The European Union's Myanmar policy has been paved with good intentions. The intention has been to help establish a legitimate, democratically elected civilian government in Myanmar. This would end repression, violation of fundamental freedoms and lead to prosperity. These are no small objectives and they are all published in the Council Conclusions and Presidency Statements. In addition to this, the personal interest of political leaders and the impact of European advocacy groups have lead to the perception that they are on "the right side of history." [Author]
