Title: The Mineral Industry of Burma (2013)
Date of publication: May 2016
Description/subject: The report carries no information beyond 2015..."From July 2012 to July 2013, the United States lifted many sanctions against Burma (also known as Myanmar) although some sanctions were retained. The lifting of many of the sanctions resulted in U.S. companies being able to invest in some businesses in the country as well as to import goods from Burma. In 2013, Burma produced a variety of mineral commodities, including cement, coal, copper, lead, natural gas, petroleum, petroleum products, precious and semiprecious stones, tin, tungsten, and zinc. In August, intense floods affected various states and regions in the country and displaced over 20,000 people. The most affected was Kayin State, which is located in the south of the country (table 1; United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, 2013). In June 2013, a new pipeline was commissioned and began transporting natural gas from Burma to China. The pipeline, which stretches for 794 kilometers (km), connects the Bay of Bengal (located on the southwest coast of Burma) to Yunnan Province of China (located to the northeast of Burma). According to China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC), the pipeline has an estimated transportation rate of 12 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year. During 2013, a parallel pipeline measuring 771 km in length was under construction; when commissioned, it would transport crude oil from the Middle East, which was originally planned to be shipped from the Indian Ocean. For the construction of the pipelines, CNPC formed a joint venture with Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise and four other companies from India and the Republic of Korea (Watt, 2013). On November 19, the Italian-Thai Development Plc. (ITD), a construction company based in Thailand, announced that it had stopped the construction of the deep-sea port and industrial zone in Dawei, Tanintharyi Division, in southern Burma, which is located about 186 km west of Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok. The 75-year concession granted to ITD remained in place while the participation of foreign investors was arranged. The project was halted due to the lack of progress and delays in construction as well as insufficient economic commitments (DVB Multimedia Group, 2013)..."

Since 2012, Burma has undergone many political changes, including reforms to law and government policies, that directly affected the country’s economy, social wellbeing, and stability. many changes were a result of the Government starting to implement more democratic reforms following more than 50 years of military rule and the subsequent lifting of sanctions imposed by Western countries. The changes were stimulating interest in foreign direct investment (FDI) in the country, especially in the mining and industry sector. In fiscal year 2015 (which ran from april 1, 2014, to march 30, 2015), FDI in Burma amounted to $8 billion invested in a total of 211 projects compared with $4.1 billion invested in 123 projects in fiscal year 2014 and $1.4 billion invested in 94 projects in fiscal year 2013. Investments in fiscal year 2015 were made by partners from Singapore (43 projects), China (34), Hong Kong (27), and the united Kingdom (12), among others. Burma’s leading investor was Singapore (which invested $4.297 billion) followed by the United Kingdom ($721.9 million), Hong Kong ($624.8 million), and China ($516.9 million) (Central Statistical Organization, 2015). The legal and regulatory framework related to FDI includes the Foreign Investment Law of 2012, the Foreign Investment Rules of 2013, and Notification No. 49/2014 (New Notification) of August 2014 issued by the Myanmar Investment Commission. The New Notification clarifies the type of activities in which foreign investments are prohibited or restricted. according to Burma’s ministry of mines, the set of laws and notifications related to FDI were created to attract interest from investors and included such provisions as exemption from commercial tax on profits that are planned to be reinvested in the country within 1 year, 5 years of tax holiday instead of 3 years, income tax relief of up to 50% on export profits, granting foreign firms the ability to fully own ventures in the country, and the promise from the Government not to nationalize the business while the contract is in place. The ministry of mines also recommended the amendment of the country’s mining Law in the near future to be in accordance with international standards, reform of the banking system, and an increase in the country’s technical knowledge as a means to increase national productivity and self-sufficiency (Aung, 2014; Finch, undated)..."

Description/subject: "...In the absence of access to Rakhine State, it continues to be difficult to fully monitor the violations that have occurred, and are apparently still occurring. However, considering the decades of statelessness as well as systematic and systemic discrimination against the Rohingya; policies of segregation, exclusion and marginalization; long-standing patterns of violations and abuses with little or no access to justice and redress; and considering the recent allegations of killing by random firing of bullets, use of grenades, shooting at close range, stabbings, beatings to death, and the burning of houses with families inside; the serious bodily or mental harm inflicted on Rohingyas including children; the subjection to various forms of torture or ill-treatment, being beaten, sexually abused, raped; considering the forced displacement and systematic destruction of villages, homes, property and livelihoods; considering also that Rohingyas self-identify as a distinct ethnic group with their own language and culture, and are also deemed by the perpetrators themselves as belonging to a different national, ethnic, racial or religious group – given all of this, can anyone rule out that elements of genocide may be present?..."

Title: Myanmar ready for climate change?
Date of publication: 11 November 2016
Description/subject: "...According to the 2016 Climate Risk Index, Myanmar is the second-most-vulnerable country in the world to the effects of climate change. Joern Kristensen, director of the Myanmar Institute for Integrated Development (MIID), has experienced firsthand how new weather patterns are putting farmers under stress. His organisation runs a climate adaptation project in the highland areas of Nyaungshwe and Kalaw in Shan State. “What we can see there is, while precipitation has been more or less the same for the past 20 years, the rainy season has become shorter. Which means you have more rain over a shorter time and, subsequently, more flooding,” he said..."

Title: HIMALICA: Rural Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation
Description/subject: "The highlands of Nyaungshwe and Kalaw Townships are a few miles from Myanmar’s famous Inle Lake, but see little benefit from the rapid tourism development occurring in the valley. These areas suffer from water scarcity and receive little value from their produce and bamboo products. In addition, land scarcity, erosion, deforestation and a shortening monsoon season due to climate change have made life in these villages increasingly difficult. The transformation of Myanmar could be a source of opportunity for these villages, or they could be further marginalized. The Myanmar Institute for Integrated Development (MIID) and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) are working with upland villages in this region to improve livelihoods, increase water access and better equip communities to address key issues and manage their natural resources. To do this we work with farmers, village leaders, the Myanmar government, traders, and other stakeholders to understand the local people, environment and political economy and to address identified needs with interventions that make sense for the community..."

Title: Parliamentary Development in Myanmar: An Overview of the Union Parliament, 2011-2016
Date of publication: May 2017
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "Myanmar’s Union Parliament has evolved into a significant political institution of the regime shaped after the 2010 general elections. First under the leadership of the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP, 2011-2016), and then the National League for Democracy (NLD) after its victory in the 2015 polls, the bicameral assembly has begun modifying, repealing, and producing new legislation. It has taken nascent but significant steps towards the vetting and scrutiny of the new, post-junta executive branch and bureaucracy. It has also served as a new public space where the grievances of citizens are heard and new ideas debated in ways unthinkable under Myanmar’s past military rules. It may prove a unique case amongst other post-authoritarian societies attempting to revive parliamentarianism. These outstanding developments do not, however, mean that Myanmar’s progress towards the institutionalization of its new legislative power will be steady and successful beyond the initial post-junta legislatures. Given that Parliament was only revised in 2011, there are several areas where reform and restructuring are needed to improve the long-term effectiveness, efficiency, representativeness, and autonomy of not only the legislative process, but also the fragile parliamentary institution itself. This report presents an assessment of the structural organization, workings, and legislative performance of the Union Parliament since 2011. It first describes the constitutional, organizational, and legal framework of Myanmar’s new, post-junta legislative process. It also offers a comparative examination of the sociological profile of the two legislatures elected in 2010 and 2015. It then analyzes the various parliamentary practices and mechanisms observed in the context of both the USDP and the early NLD legislatures. Drawing on interviews carried out in Nay Pyi Taw, the study focuses on the core functions a democratic legislature is meant to perform: the (re)making of laws, the representation of citizens, and the scrutiny of government activities and expenditures. The report argues that Myanmar’s Union Parliament has fallen into the category of a nascent, marginal legislature, with the willingness and capacity to influence, rather than command, policy and lawmaking, and a potential for vetting, rather than thoroughly overseeing, the activities and behaviors of other branches of government. With the assistance of domestic and international donors, there have been remarkable attempts in its six years of existence to institutionalize and professionalize the functioning of the legislature and the capacity of its members and staff. Nevertheless, the report points to several key weaknesses, including the lack of sufficient resources, efficient organizational capacity, knowledge, and understanding of oversight and vetting mechanisms and a fragile institutional autonomy. The report concludes with a series of recommendations for enhancing the role, functioning, representativeness, and influence of the Union legislature so as to strengthen a body that is essential for the deepening of democratization in Myanmar..."

Title: Resolving the Northern Stalemate is the Key to Peace in Myanmar
Date of publication: 28 November 2017
Description/subject: "Angshuman Choudhury considers options for the government in engaging with a new ethnic umbrella group...On 11-12 November, a delegation of senior government officials led by the Union Minister for Border Affairs, Lt-Gen Ye Aung, met with members of Myanmar’s largest Ethnic Armed Organisation (EAO), the United Wa State Army (UWSA), and its smaller ally, the National Democratic Alliance Army (NDAA, also known as the Mongla Army), in the de facto Wa capital of Pangkham and Mongla Special Region-4, respectively. A large part of the discussions involved each party laying on the table their agenda for the ongoing ethnic peace process. This was a much-awaited icebreaker that came months after failed attempts by Naypyidaw to arrange talks with the northern groups that continue to dismiss the Nationwide Ceasefire Accord (NCA) – the foundation of the current peace process– and flag their alternate framework for dialogue under a new alliance of seven non-ceasefire EAOs, known as the Federal Political Negotiation and Consultative Committee (FPNCC). The discussions that transpired indicate how differently the northern groups perceive the peace process and the federal imagination as compared to the union centres of power. Clearly, the FPNCC is a fresh challenge for the government, and could decisively stymie the already jittery relationship between the civilian government of State Counsellor (SC) Aung San Suu Kyi, the Tatmadaw (military), and the non-ceasefire EAOs. Insofar as the union government’s agenda for ethnic reconciliation is concerned, there is little doubt that the north, where the most powerful rebel armies operate, holds the key to a permanent negotiated settlement. There are few regions in the country where the need for de-escalation is as urgent as in the north, which has been ravaged by unprecedented levels of conflict for the past two years. Yet, the conditions for peace remain obscure as ever – a point only reaffirmed by the recent meeting...What Happened At the Meeting? First, the FPNCC expressed that it wants to follow its own dialogue framework while the government and Tatmadaw insisted that all parties stick to the NCA. The two processes seem to be at serious loggerheads, especially in light of the recently-released FPNCC charter that proposes extensive devolution of powers to individual ‘nations’ within the Union– an agenda that radically challenges the centripetal sentiments of Naypyidaw’s ruling elite. There is little chance that the Tatmadaw would take up such a de-centralised model for discussion anytime soon. Second, the UWSA and NDAA insist that the government talk to them as a single group (i.e., as the FPNCC) along with the other EAOs, but the government/Tatmadaw side prefers individual meetings for reasons that are fairly obvious..."

Title: Building Peace in Myanmar: Birth of the FPNCC
Date of publication: 06 October 2017
Description/subject: "On 19 April 2017, the Federal Political Negotiation and Consultative Committee (FPNCC) was formed by the 4th Ethnic Armed Organisations (EAOs) Pangkham summit with the task of “discussing with the government of Union of Myanmar regarding the issues of peace-building in Myanmar.” Its 27 authorised representatives belong to seven Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) non-signatories of the Arakan Army (AA), the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA), the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), the Shan State Progress Party/Shan State Army (SSPP/SSA), the National Democratic Alliance Army (NDAA) and the United Wa State Army (UWSA). The FPNCC membership was declared to be open to qualified EAOs, political parties on ethnic affairs as well as high-profile individuals. Today, the 30,000-member UWSA is the strongest Ethnic Armed Organisation in the country (and also the strongest non-state army of the world); its members are heavily armed with sophisticated Chinese-made weapons..."

Title: Dealing with displacement in Myanmar’s peace process (Working Paper).
Date of publication: September 2017
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "Myanmar has been engaged in a process of political change since 2011. A central goal of these reforms has been the attempt to resolve political conflicts between ethnic armed organisations (EAOs) and the Myanmar Government. Talks began under the ‘civilian government’ led by Thein Sein and have continued under the National League of Democracy (NLD) - led Government. However, several years of talks have produced little concrete progress. This is a complex peace process, which has only the partial inclusion of Myanmar’s many ethnic armed organisations and which is being conducted in a climate of continuing conflict and state violence and continuing tensions between the Burman majority and other ethnic groups. This is evident in large - scale displacement from R akhine State (where more than 300,000 refugees fled to Bangladesh in September 2017) and in Kachin and northern Shan States (where more than 119,000 people have been displaced since 2011). There is also an urgent emerging problem of large - scale development and land acquisition projects creating further displacement. It is important not to be naïve about the scale of the challenges in Myanmar’s peace process, or indeed about the possibility that the peace process may break down entirely. However, it is a lso valuable to consider what would be required to maximise the chances of a successful peace process. There is no formula to determine why some peace processes work while others fail, but the chances of building a sustainable peace are substantially enhan ced when the process genuinely engages with and seeks to correct the inequalities and injustice that gave rise to conflict. For Myanmar, that must include addressing the causes and consequences of displacement . This working paper sets out the context an d experience of displacement in and from Myanmar. It identifies a number of areas that must be addressed, including: - The process of drafting a peace agreement, and displacement - specific provisions to include in a peace agreement; - The timing, design and implementation of return and reintegration of displaced populations; - Wider issues of legal protection, land governance and restitution. The working paper also identifies some cross - cutting themes, including the need to recognise a relationship between displacement and other aspects of peacebuilding (such as political autonomy for ethnic areas and land governance); the necessity of ensuring that displaced people themselves are central to the process of policy design, ideally through institutionalised mechanisms for dialogue, consultation and representation; and the importance of securing continued funding to support refugees and IDPs with a continuing need of international protection..."

Title: THE CONTESTED AREAS OF MYANMAR - Subnational Conflict, Aid, and Development
Date of publication: 16 October 2017
Description/subject: "As Myanmar emerges from decades of authoritarianism and isolation, significant progress toward peace has been made since 2011. But heavy fighting and deadly clashes have intensified in many of the country’s contested areas, in particular Rakhine State, which has led to massive displacement, and Kachin and Shan States. These conflicts are among the world’s most enduring, posing significant challenges to national political reforms, economic growth, and human development, according to a study released yesterday by The Asia Foundation. The year-long study, “The Contested Areas of Myanmar: Subnational Conflict, Aid, and Development,” comes at a pivotal moment amid longstanding conflicts in many parts of Myanmar, political dialogue to address the concerns of numerous ethnic groups, and a desire among international donors and aid agencies to support the peacebuilding process and the country’s political transition. Findings from the study shed light on structural changes that are crucial for achieving sustainable and comprehensive peace in a country of great ethnic and cultural diversity. In addition, it reveals the intimate connections between subnational conflicts and national politics in Myanmar, instances where development interventions have contributed to uneven power dynamics and fueled armed resistance, and ways in which international aid can sometimes damage prospects for peace when initiatives are not sensitive to conflict. In this context, the study underscores a critical need to continue the ongoing political and economic reforms while building a system of government that is widely recognized as legitimate by people of all ethnic nationalities. Below are some key findings from the study: Myanmar’s subnational conflicts are not a peripheral issue and directly affect much of the country In 2016, areas affected by active or latent subnational conflict were found in at least 11 of Myanmar’s 14 states and regions. One hundred and eighteen of 330 townships, containing almost one-quarter of Myanmar’s population, currently demonstrate live or latent characteristics of conflict. Myanmar’s conflicts are not caused by underdevelopment There is no simple correlation between human development, economic growth, and conflict in Myanmar, and subnational conflicts will not be resolved by measures to improve development outcomes. Conflict townships are on average only marginally less developed than non-conflict townships, particularly when Yangon is excluded. Some conflict townships exceed national averages, while others have the lowest development indicators in the country. Tackling underdevelopment alone will not create peace Development interventions alone can never lead to peace. Myanmar’s conflicts are inherently political and connect to the structure of the state. Political solutions are, therefore, required to solve subnational conflict. Given the complex nature of Myanmar’s armed conflicts, interventions and policies should be strengthened to address the underlying drivers of conflict and be more responsive to the power inequities that have driven conflict over years, especially during transitional political periods. Development policies can drive subnational conflict In many contested areas, economic changes and increased natural resource exploitation have ratcheted up tensions, engendered rivalries, fueled grievances, and provided funds that have sustained conflict. Foreign assistance can sometimes be manipulated to serve security objectives, particularly where government officials or leaders of ethnic armed organizations are able to decide project locations. In short, development interventions are never neutral. Aid can build momentum for peace as well as damage the prospects for peace Projects that serve the security aims of one side can damage the confidence of ethnic groups in the country’s transition, while programs that support political reforms, such as decentralization, can help build momentum. $13.7 billion in aid was committed to new projects between 2011 and 2015. Closer alignment of donors with government offers advantages in coverage, cost effectiveness, and sustainability, but it also poses risks for peace..."
