Title: BURMA 2017 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT
Date of publication: 21 April 2018
Description/subject: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "Burma has a quasi- parliamentary system of government in which the national parliament selects the president and c onstitutional provisions grant one -quarter of parliamentary seats to active duty military appointees. The military also has the authority to appoint the ministers of defense, home affairs, and border affairs and one of two vice presidents, as well as to assume power over all branches of the government should the president declare a national state of emergency. In 2015 the country held nationwide parliamentary elections that the public widely accepted as a credible reflection of the will of the people. In 2016 parliament selected National League for Democracy ( NLD) member Htin Kyaw as president and created the position of S tate Counse llor for NLD party leader Aung San Suu Kyi, formalizing her position as the civilian government’ s de facto leader. Under the constitution, civilian authorities have no authority over the security forces; armed forces Commander -in -Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing maintain ed effective control over the security forces. Ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya minority in Rakhine State occurred during the year. In early August some security forces deployed throughout northern Rakhine State, committing enforced disappearances and arbitrary arrests and displacing villagers, the majority of whom were Rohingya . On August 25, the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) claimed responsibility for coordinated attack s against 30 security outposts in northern Rakhine State , killing 12 security personnel. Augmented security forces, as well as local vigilante groups acti ng independently or in concert with security forces, then reportedly committed widespread atrocities against Rohingya villagers, including extrajudicial killings , disappearances, rape, torture, arbitrary arrest, and burning of tens of thousands of homes an d some religious structures and other buildings . Th is displaced more than 655,000 Rohingya to neighboring Bangladesh as of December , as well as an unknown number within Rakhine State , and more than 20,000 villagers from other ethnic groups, many of whom were evacuated by the security forces. In addition to the atrocities in Rakhine State , the most significant human rights issues included: arbitrary or unlawful killings; politically motivated arrests; authorities’ hum an rights violations against civilians in other ethnic minority areas and conflict zones, particularly in Kachin State and Shan State ; continued harsh conditions in prisons and labor camps; restrictions on freedom of speech, BURMA 2 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2017 United States Department of State • Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor assembly, and association, including intimidation and arres t of journalists; restrictions on freedom of religion; continued statelessness for some populations and severe restrictions on freedom of movement ; criminaliz ation of same -sex sexual activities, although the law was rarely enforced; and trafficking in pers ons, including forced labor of adults and children. Although the government took some limited actions to prosecute or punish officials responsible for abuses, the vast majority of such abuses continued with impunity. Some nonstate groups committed human rights abuses, including extrajudicial killings, forced labor of adults and children , and failure to protect civilians in conflict zones"

Title: CHILDHOOD INTERRUPTED – MYANMAR MUST DO MORE TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM CONFLICT AND ABUSES
Date of publication: 11 April 2018
Description/subject: "On March 28, 2018, a Yangon court sentenced a former child soldier, Aung Ko Htway, to two years in prison with hard labor for giving an interview to the media outlet Radio Free Asia in July 2017 about his abduction into the Myanmar Army at age 14, and subsequent harsh training experience. Abducted by a Myanmar[1] Army officer in 2005 from Yangon central railway station, Aung Ko Htway was sold at a military market in Mingaladon Township, enlisted in the military, and sent to a military training camp. In contrast to Aung Ko Htway’s sentencing, the military officer who abducted him has not been punished. As a joint statement by 154 civil society organizations in Myanmar calling for Aung Ko Htway’s release pointed out, it is his recruitment and inhumane treatment that is a crime, not his exercise of free speech in speaking out. Children in Myanmar continue to suffer from conflict-related violence and abuses, including systematic forced recruitment into the Myanmar Army and some ethnic armed organizations, arrest by the Myanmar Army on suspicion of association with unlawful organizations, and injury or death from landmines and shelling of civilian areas including churches and schools. Despite the seriousness of their needs, child victims are not given any support or rehabilitation by the Government, and the few who speak out are targeted with legal reprisals. At an early age, many children learn that the Myanmar Government cannot or will not protect them from the Myanmar Army, which continues to abuse children and other civilians with impunity. The judicial system is no more a source of protection or for enforcement of Myanmar’s legal obligations, as it continues to side with the Myanmar Army and Myanmar Government in cases against those who dare to speak out or seek justice..."

Title: KYAUKPYU: CONNECTING CHINA TO THE INDIAN OCEAN
Date of publication: March 2018
Description/subject: "Kyaukpyu is a coastal town along the Bay of Bengal in Myanmar’s western-most state of Rakhine. In 2016, subsidiaries of China’s CITIC Group Corporation, including China Harbor Engineering Company, won contracts for two major projects in the town—the dredging of a deep-sea port and the creation of an industrial area in an accompanying special economic zone (SEZ). The port project is valued at $7.3 billion and the SEZ at $2.7 billion. Under the terms of the deal, CITIC will build and then run the project for 50 years with a potential extension of another 25 years. Negotiations on Kyaukpyu predate the Belt and Road Initiative—CITIC signed initial memorandums of understanding (MOUs) for the harbor project and a railway connecting the SEZ to southern China in 2009. However, they languished amid political sensitivities in Myanmar surrounding Chinese investments following the 2011 suspension of the Myitsone dam project and violent protests starting in 2012 over the Letpadaung copper mine. The railway MOU was canceled in 2014 while the port and SEZ industrial area projects are moving forward, but slowly and with considerable pushback within Myanmar. Only in October 2017 did the two sides reach an agreement on ownership of the port project after CITIC agreed to drop its stake from 85 percent to 70 percent. Ownership stakes in the SEZ have yet to be finalized..."

Title: ONGOING BURMA ARMY LOGGING THREATENS PEACE EFFORTS IN KARENNI STATE
Date of publication: 2018
Description/subject: "This briefing paper analyzes how Burma Army exploitation of natural resources in Karenni State is undermining efforts by the Karenni National Progress Party to seek peace, as happened over twenty years ago. In 1995, the Karenni National Progress Party (KNPP) signed a ceasefire agreement with the then military regime. However, after only three months, the Burma Army launched an offensive to drive out KNPP from its bases in eastern Karenni State, in order to profit from logging in the area. Tens of thousands of villagers were forcibly displaced, and rampant logging by the Burma Army and military-linked businesses led to widespread deforestation. The KNPP signed a new ceasefire agreement in 2012, but the Burma Army continued to benefit from logging, even after a logging ban by the NLD government in 2016-2017. On December 20, 2017, after KNPP troops uncovered an illegal shipment of timber by the Burma Army, three KNPP troops and one civilian were shot dead by the Burma Army. The incident heightened tension between KNPP and the Burma Army, and caused a significant loss of trust among the Karenni people in the peace process..."

Title: “TELL THEM WE’RE HUMAN” WHAT CANADA AND THE WORLD CAN DO ABOUT THE ROHINGYA CRISIS
Date of publication: 2018
Description/subject: "As Prime Minister Trudeau’s Special Envoy to Myanmar, I engaged in extensive research, travel and meetings with key interlocutors from October 2017 to March 2018 to assess the violent events of August 2017 and afterward that led more than 671,000 Rohingya to flee their homes in Rakhine State, Myanmar, and seek refuge in neighbouring Bangladesh. This report focuses on the following four themes: the need to combine principle and pragmatism in responding to the serious humanitarian crisis in both Myanmar and Bangladesh; the ongoing political challenges in Myanmar; the strong signals that crimes against humanity were committed in the forcible and violent displacement of more than 671,000 Rohingya from Rakhine State in Myanmar; and the clear need for more effective coordination of both domestic and international efforts. The humanitarian crisis in Bangladesh and Myanmar: With the arrival of more than 671,000 additional refugees in Bangladesh since August 25, 2017, the displaced Rohingya population living in camps in Bangladesh now approaches one million. Camps are overcrowded, the population is traumatized, and the rainy season will soon be upon them. UN agencies have responded with a Joint Response Plan aiming to gather US$950.8 million for the next year. In addition, there could be as many as 450,000 Rohingya remaining in central and northern Rakhine State. Their situation is precarious. Many are in camps for internally displaced persons (IDP), and others are essentially locked into their villages, with poor food supplies and little access to international humanitarian assistance. This demands a response from the international community, and Canada needs to play a strong role. Canada needs to increase its budget dedicated to the crisis, as well as to encourage deeper coordination with like-minded countries. Canada and other countries should also explore avenues to allow the Rohingya to be eligible to apply for refugee status and resettlement, including in Canada, but it needs to be stressed that resettlement alone will not solve the problem..."

Title: ETHNIC COMMUNITIES’ RECURRENT NIGHTMARE
Date of publication: 05 April 2018
Description/subject: "The indigenous peoples of conflict-affected Mutraw District of northern Karen State, where a Myanmar[1] Army offensive has displaced over 2,000 people in recent weeks, have implored State Counsellor, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to act to stop the violence. In a statement, the leaders of 16 indigenous Karen communities conveyed the suffering that they have experienced, not just in recent weeks, but throughout many decades of the Myanmar Army’s abuse. This was reiterated by a statement coming out of the Third Karen Women’s Seminar that called for the end of military operations in Karen areas. The Indigenous Karen Village Leaders’ statement comes after the Myanmar Army violated terms of the nationwide ceasefire agreement (NCA) and entered Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) territory in order to rebuild a road. Over 2,000 people are displaced due to the subsequent fighting and hundreds more are living in fear. Building the road is significant, as it is part of a strategy to enhance the Myanmar Army’s political, economic and military power in the area which was previously inaccessible before the signing of the ceasefire. The Karen Peace Support Network (KPSN) has pointed out in an earlier statement, that “roads allow the military to bring heavy weapons into Karen areas, and villagers are often in danger of being shot near these roads despite the ceasefire.” To make matters worse, a proposed meeting between the KNLA and the Myanmar Army to discuss and attempt to resolve the situation was cancelled by the Myanmar Army, allegedly because the KNLA’s Brigade 5 Commander – the area in which the conflict has taken place – was not going to attend. This is despite the fact that the meeting was supposed to be attended by the Military Affairs Negotiation Team which was established by the Karen National Union – the political wing of the KNLA – exactly to deal with matters related to the NCA..."

Title: How Facebook can help to foster an inclusive discourse in Myanmar
Date of publication: 12 April 2018
Description/subject: "[Editor’s note: Tea Circle will be taking a break over the Thingyan holiday. We will return on 23 April and will run our annual “Year in Review” series through the month of May.] As the main platform of information and communication for most people in Myanmar, Facebook has a social responsibility to promote its safe and responsible use. Facebook has been beneficial for connecting friends and families within Myanmar and across the world. Unfortunately, it has also been a platform used to spread hate speech, rumors that Muslims are not Myanmar citizens, and, in some cases, messages provoking violence. Since August of last year, over 700,000 Rohingya civilians have been forced to flee Myanmar into neighboring Bangladesh with reports of widespread atrocities, including, murder, rape, and arson of their homes. The United Nations has called this a textbook case of ethnic cleansing, referring to it as a possible genocide and as constituting crimes against humanity. Many in the international community are hoping for the refugees to be repatriated, but for many Rohingyas, they are fearful for their safety, that they will still not be accepted as part of Myanmar and that, upon their return, they would have to remain in camps without freedom of movement or equal rights. Most people in Myanmar have never met a Rohingya person, but nonetheless many express an unfounded hatred, refusing to recognize their citizenship as fellow brothers and sisters, and some even supporting their displacement..."

Date of publication: 09 March 2018
Description/subject: "In the last five years, Myanmar has seen apolitical transition towards a democratic system of government and from a state-dominated to amarket-oriented economy. It has also witnessed a transition towards greater decentralization. The Union government has taken significant steps to strengthen its public financial management system and improve fiscal transparency, by establishing new institutions, procedures, and practices. Establishing parliament’s Public Accounts Committee, granting autonomy to the central bank, and creating a treasury department are some of the initiatives that signal the government’s determination to reform and restructure the existing public financial management system. With the publication of the Citizen’s Budget and the Union Budget Law on the Ministry of Finance web portal, government has demonstrated its willingness to improve budget transparency..."

Title: Supporting the Transition: Understanding Aid to Myanmar Since 2011 - အသြင္ကူးေျပာင္းမွဳကိုပံ့ပိုးကူညီျခင္း
Date of publication: February 2018
Description/subject: "Myanmar today is one of the world’s largest recipients of international development assistance, often referred to simply as “aid.” A history of underinvestment has left the country with the highest poverty rate in the region and critical deficits in infrastructure and social services, making it a priority for many development agencies. Myanmar was the seventh-largest recipient of international aid in 2015, and it is now the third-largest recipient per capita in the region—behind only Cambodia and Laos, which have far smaller populations. Expectations are for sustained, high engagement with the international community..."

Title: Women’s Political Participation in Myanmar: Experiences of Women Parliamentarians 2011-2016
Date of publication: April 2017
Description/subject: "Sixty years of military rule in Myanmar has seen the critical role of women’s political participation marginalized. From an extremely low base, the 2010 general elections increased the opportunity for women’s participation in governance. The 2015 general elections presented another opportunity for a more inclusive representational government, and Myanmar saw a significant increase in the number of women parliamentarians. However, there remain substantial challenges to addressing the gender gap in political participation in Myanmar. Given the nascent but evolving context for women’s political participation in Myanmar, The Asia Foundation thought that it would be useful to document the experiences of the first generation of women parliamentarians to understand better their motivations and the challenges they face. We hope that the insights that they have about their own situations and what can be improved will be useful for the next generation of women’s parliamentarians as well as informing relevant support provided by government, political parties, and civil society organizations to increase gender equality in Myanmar..."

Title: Will Myanmar respond to Rohingya refugees' demands? (video)
Date of publication: 12 April 2018
Description/subject: "For the first time since Myanmar's military crackdown last year that led to almost 700,000 Rohingya fleeing into neighbouring Bangladesh, a government minister has visited a refugee camp. Win Myat Aye, Myanmar's social welfare minister, provoked anger when he reportedly told a group of about 40 Rohingya that if they were to return to Myanmar, they would have to accept national verification cards and state they were migrants from Bangladesh. The refugees at the Kutupalong camp in the border city of Cox' Bazar say they are from Myanmar. They gave the minister a list of 13 demands they want to be met before they return home. Bangladesh and Myanmar had agreed to begin the repatriation of the Rohingya refugees in January, but there were delays because of safety concerns. So how will the government respond and how committed is it to resolving the crisis?"
