Title: Are the Rohingya on the brink of another crisis? (video)
Date of publication: 15 February 2018
Description/subject: "The UN says the March monsoon season poses a serious threat to thousands living in Bangladeshi refugee camps...To date roughly 670,000 Rohingya have fled their homes in Myanmar, to Bangladesh, in an effort to escape violence. More than 1,500 refugees have fled this month alone and thousands more are expected. The mass exodus began back in August when the Myanmar military began attacking the Rohingya and torching their villages after a small Rohingya armed group attached an army checkpoint. The United Nations and human rights groups have said the campaign amounts to ethnic cleansing. The UN estimates 107,000 refugees are living in areas of Bangladesh prone to flooding or landslides. "We are now in a race against time," says Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. "The [Bangladeshi] Government is steering a massive emergency preparedness effort, but international support must be stepped up to avert a catastrophe," he said in a statement to the U.N. Security Council . Meanwhile, an explosive expose by Reuters about a massacre in a Rohingya village has landed two Reuters journalists in jail. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo investigated the killing of 10 Rohingya muslims in Northern Rakhine state who were reportedly were shot and hacked to death by a group that included their Buddhist neighbors and Myanmar soldiers. The journalists are charged with receiving government secrets and face up to 14 years in prison. They appeared in court Wednesday, just one day after receiving a major press award for their investigation..."

Title: Human Rights Council must address dramatic deterioration of human rights situation in Myanmar - Amnesty International's written statement to the 34th session of the UN Human Rights Council (26 February-23 March 2018)
Date of publication: 16 February 2018
Description/subject: "The situation in Myanmar has deteriorated dramatically in the last year, and across the country the military has committed wide-ranging human rights violations. The severity of the situation cannot be understated. Myanmar today increasingly – and alarmingly – resembles the Myanmar of old. The civilian government, while holding no formal power over the military, has failed to curb the violence, and instead has often fostered rather than challenged impunity and discrimination. The country risks regressing still further unless there is a major change in course. This not only necessitates a fundamental change from Myanmar’s civilian and military authorities, but also much more effective action from the international community. At the upcoming session, the UN Human Rights Council must send a clear message to Myanmar’s leaders that human rights violations – both past and ongoing – will not go unpunished."

Title: Massacre in Myanmar
Date of publication: 08 February 2018
Description/subject: "How Myanmar forces burned, looted and killed in a remote village... On Sept. 2, Buddhist villagers and Myanmar troops killed 10 Rohingya men in Myanmar's restive Rakhine state. Reuters uncovered the massacre and has pieced together how it unfolded. During the reporting of this article, two Reuters journalists were arrested by Myanmar police.NN DIN, Myanmar – Bound together, the 10 Rohingya Muslim captives watched their Buddhist neighbors dig a shallow grave. Soon afterwards, on the morning of Sept. 2, all 10 lay dead. At least two were hacked to death by Buddhist villagers. The rest were shot by Myanmar troops, two of the gravediggers said. “One grave for 10 people,” said Soe Chay, 55, a retired soldier from Inn Din’s Rakhine Buddhist community who said he helped dig the pit and saw the killings. The soldiers shot each man two or three times, he said. “When they were being buried, some were still making noises. Others were already dead.” The killings in the coastal village of Inn Din marked another bloody episode in the ethnic violence sweeping northern Rakhine state, on Myanmar’s western fringe. Nearly 690,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled their villages and crossed the border into Bangladesh since August. None of Inn Din’s 6,000 Rohingya remained in the village as of October..."

Title: Inn Din massacre report puts Myanmar at a crossroads
Date of publication: 14 February 2018
Description/subject: "LAST WEEK’S explosive Reuters investigation into the killings of 10 Rohingya at Inn Din in northern Rakhine State in September made for grim reading. In what is one of the best, most detailed reports on the crisis, the Reuters team – including journalists Ko Wa Lone and Ko Kyaw Soe Oo who were arrested in December while researching the story and remain in jail – documented how government troops and Buddhist villagers carried out the killings and buried the victims in a single grave. Few who have seen it will forget the haunting photograph of the kneeling men surrounded by security forces shortly before their death. In this case, the “picture tells a thousand words” cliché rang true. But the text was just as powerful; a 4,500-word indictment of the authorities’ brazen denials that its forces have been responsible for systematic human rights abuses. Of course, the military has already admitted that its forces, together with Buddhist villagers, killed the 10 men. It did this to pre-empt the release of the Reuters report, and after its own investigation had claimed that no such killings took place...".....This editorial appears in the February 15 edition of Frontier.

Date of publication: December 2017
Description/subject: Key Findings: 1. Between 1995 and 2017, the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) has documented the widespread and systematic violation of human rights by the Burma Army and Ethnic Armed Organizations ( EAOs ) in Mon S tate and Mon areas of southeast Burma . The majority of the perpetrators of these abuses have been able to act with impunity and have not been held accountable for their actions . 2. During the reporting period, HURFOM has documented a minimum of 108 incidents of arbitrary arrest, detention, or torture by Burma Army soldiers and EAOs, affecting well over 3,300 individuals . Over 30 Burma Army battalions were implicated in these abuses, the majority of which occurred in Ye Township, Mon State and Yebyu Township, Tenasserim Division . 3. From 1995 until 2017, HURFOM has documented over 57 incidents of extrajudicial killings by the Burma Army and EAOs, for a minimum of 190 deaths of villagers .

Description/subject: "Rohingya refugees are still not allowed to return to Myanmar, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees has told the UN Security Council. According to Filippo Grandi, "conditions in Myanmar are not yet conducive" for the 668,000 Rohingya to return home. The refugees fled to neighbouring Bangladesh after the Myanmar authorities launched a violent crackdown in northern Rakhine state last August. "The causes of their flight have not been addressed, and we have yet to see substantive progress on addressing the exclusion and denial of rights that has deepened over the last decades, rooted in their lack of citizenship," he said. Grandi also said the office of the UNHCR lacks access to Rakhine, where hundreds of villages have been burned down by the Myanmar military. "Humanitarian access, as you have heard, remains extremely restricted. UNHCR has not had access to affected areas of the northern part of Rakhine state, beyond Maungdaw town, since August 2017, and our access in central Rakhine has also been curtailed," he said.

"UNHCR presence and access throughout the state are essential to monitor protection conditions, provide independent information to refugees, and accompany returns as and when they take place."..."

Title: Greening China's Belt & Road Initiative in Myanmar
Date of publication: 17 December 2017
Description/subject: "Road projects proposed as part of the One Belt One Road Initiative (BRI) in Myanmar would provide transport infrastructure to areas of the Ayeyarwady River Basin and surrounding mountain areas — home to approximately 25 million people. These people rely on natural capital—including forests, rivers, land, and biodiversity—for a range of benefits, including clean drinking water and protection from natural disasters. There is a risk that the benefits of BRI road projects could be undermined by substantial social, environmental and economic costs if roads are constructed in ways that fragment ecosystems, endanger wildlife, or contribute to deforestation, landslides, flooding and pollution. Through better road planning and design, there is a great opportunity for the benefits of the BRI to become much more far-reaching."

Title: Myanmar road corridors threaten land and livelihoods
Date of publication: 12 February 2017
Description/subject: "Chinese highways could put forests at risk and break international law, say environmental groups...Up to half of Myanmar’s population live in areas that could suffer environmental damage from two giant highways unless the ecological risks are considered, according to a new report from the World Wildlife Fund. The planned roads will form part of China’s continent-crossing network of overseas infrastructure known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). “We've estimated about 24 million people could be affected by this infrastructure project – and negatively affected if it is not carried out in a way where you are taking into account the potential impacts on areas that help provide clean water, protection against floods, landslides, and so on,” report author Hanna Helsingen told chinadialogue. Environmentalists and lawyers have voiced fears that Myanmar’s fledgling environmental protection laws, which date from 2015, are insufficiently robust, transparent or enforced to prevent adverse impacts on forest cover, water management and people’s livelihoods..."

Title: Inside Myanmar: After the Crackdown (video)
Date of publication: 2007
Description/subject: "In 2007, Al Jazeera went undercover in Myanmar to report on monks' protests and the resulting crackdown by the military... Back in 2007, the people of Myanmar were still living under harsh military rule. Among the first major international news stories Al Jazeera covered was the Myanmar government's brutal crackdown on peacefully protesting monks. News reaching the outside world at that time was scarce. But Al Jazeera correspondent Tony Birtley was one of the few international journalists who had managed to get into the country, and was able to film the unfolding events while working undercover at the very heart of the protests. Ten years later, Yangon-based journalist Fiona MacGregor tells REWIND how the story has moved on. "We have to remember that the military still plays a huge role here," she says."

In December 2002, it gained its name, became a project of The Nation Institute, and went online as "a regular antidote to the mainstream media." The site now features Tom Engelhardt's regular commentaries and the original work of authors ranging from Rebecca Solnit, Bill McKibben, and Mike Davis to Chalmers Johnson, Michael Klare, Adam Hochschild, Robert Lipsyte, and Elizabeth de la Vega. Nick Turse, who also writes for the site, is associate editor and research director. Tomdispatch is intended to introduce readers to voices and perspectives from elsewhere (even when the elsewhere is here). Its mission is to connect some of the global dots regularly left unconnected by the mainstream media and to offer a clearer sense of how this imperial globe of ours actually works..."

Title: UN Security Council Must Halt Disastrous March of Myanmar’s Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya
Date of publication: 09 February 2018
Description/subject: "Abdu Salam stayed in his village as Myanmar soldiers and local vigilantes burned down dozens of homes there last August. He stayed as news spread of atrocities that soldiers had committed in other Rohingya villages across northern Rakhine State. He stayed because Hpon Nyo Leik village was his home, the only home he’d known, and he wanted to protect his family’s property and right to live there. But when, at the end of 2017, the Myanmar military’s starvation tactics left Abdu Salam’s family struggling to find food, they were forced to join the exodus to Bangladesh. On 13 February, the UN Security Council will be briefed again on the situation in Myanmar. The briefing comes as the Myanmar government says it’s ready to start repatriating people from Bangladesh. But the military’s efforts to drive the Rohingya population out of the country haven’t even ground to a halt. The Security Council’s inaction, amid a weak international response to the ongoing crimes against humanity, has been a key part of the problem..."

Title: The Prince
Date of publication: 1513
Description/subject: Introductory Note: NICCOLO MACHIAVELLI, one of the most brilliant and versatile intellects of the Italian Renaissance, was born at Florence, May 3, 1469. He entered the public service as a y oung man, and between 1500 and 1512 he was employed in a number of diplomatic missions to the other Italian cities, to France, and to Germany. When the Medici returned to pow er in Florence in 1512, Machiavelli lost his positions, and suffered imprisonment and torture. On his release in the following year, he retired to the country and devoted himself to study and the composition of his most famous work, “The Prince.” Other writings followed; and in the last year of his life we find him again in active life, this time as a soldier . He died June 21, 1527. 1 A more detailed account of Machiavelli, by Lord Macaulay, will be found in the vol ume of “English Essays” in the Harvard Classics. 2 Machiavelli’s aim in “The Prince” has been very variously interpreted. His motive was probably mainly patriotic; but the exclusion of moral considerations in his treatmen t of politics led, even in his own century, to his name’s becoming a synonym for all that is diabolical in public and private policy. Whatever may be the relation of the methods expounded in “The Prince” to his personal ideals, the book remains a most vivid and suggestive picture of political conditions in the Italy of the Renaissance. 3 Machiavelli’s “Discourses on Livy’s Decades” deals on a larger scale with many of the topics of “The Prince”; his “Art of War” elaborates his views on the military side; and his “History of Florence,” his “Life of Castruccio Castracani,” and his comedy, “Mandragola,” are characteristic products of an accomplished man of letters who one time was diplomat and soldier, at another historian, poet, and dramatist. Few men represe nt so thoroughly the extraordinary versatility of that wonderful age. 4 “Of all Machiavelli’s writings,” says Garnett, “‘The Prince’ is the most famous, a nd deservedly, for it is the most characteristic. Few subjects of literary discussion h ave occasioned more controversy than the purpose of this celebrated book. Some have behe ld in it a manual for tyrants, like the memoirs of Tiberius, so diligently perused by D omitian; others have regarded it as a refined irony upon tyranny, on the sarcastic plan of Swi ft’s Directions to Servants, if so humble an analogy be permissible. From various points of view it might alternately pass for either, but its purpose is accurately conveyed by neither interpretation. Machiavelli was a sincere though too supple a republican, and by no means desired the universal prevalence of tyranny throughout Italy.... His aim probably was to show how to build up a principality capable of expelling the foreigner and restoring the independence of Italy. But this intention could not be safely expressed, and hence h is work seems repulsive, because the reason of state which he propounds as an apology f or infringing the moral code appears not patriotic, but purely selfish.... With all his fa ults and oversights, nothing can deprive Machiavelli of the glory of having been the mode rn Aristotle in politics, the first, or at least the first considerable writer who derived a practical philosophy from history, and exalted statecraft into science.”

Title: HOUSING, LAND AND PROPERTY RIGHTS AND PEACE AGREEMENTS: GUIDANCE FOR THE MYANMAR PEACE PROCESS
Date of publication: 08 February 2018
Description/subject: I. HOUSING, LAND AND PROPERTY ISSUES AND CONFLICT: CAUSE, CONSEQUENCE AND CURE... II. HLP ISSUES IN THE MYANMAR PEACE PROCESS AND HOW BEST TO ADDRESS THEM... III. PEACE AND POST-CONFLICT AGREEMENTS AND HLP ISSUES: A COUNTRY-BY- COUNTRY OVERVIEW... IV. CONCLUSIONS....."Any successful outcome to the peace process in Myanmar will invariably need to address the wide range of housing, land and property (HLP) rights issues that are central components in all of the unresolved conflicts in the country. At least superficially, there is growing evidence that various actors engaged in the peace process are increasingly recognising that the resolution of HLP rights issues will be critical towards building the foundations needed for the long-term peace and stability of the country. The agreement of ten key land and environment principles at the May 2017 Panglong 2 Summit by the government and ethnic negotiating armed ethnic groups provides an important basis for further agreement on HLP issues as the process unfolds. This paper aims to bolster this process by providing a brief overview of how HLP matters have been addressed in other peace processes throughout the world over the past 25 years, some of which may prove inspirational to peace negotiators in Myanmar. There is a wide range of experience about how and in which manner HLP issues have been included in peace agreements, and HLP issues are increasingly recognized for their multi-dimensional impacts upon conflict. Indeed, HLP issues can be the cause of conflict, a consequence of conflict, and an important means for securing a sustainable peace following conflict. HLP concerns and the human rights and other considerations attached to them are now widely agreed to form vital ingredients in the quest for long-term economic vitality and social stability following conflict. As a result, HLP issues are growing in prominence and are now viewed as key considerations in conflict prevention and peacebuilding initiatives... Despite the fact that virtually all recent major peace processes and post-conflict periods of reconstruction in other countries have sought to structurally address the severe HLP consequences of the conflict concerned, there is a significant risk in Myanmar that because of the deep vested interests attached to so many of them, HLP issues will be perceived as too sensitive or complex to be properly addressed in any eventual agreement. It is important, therefore, to foster awareness about HLP issues among those engaged in, or supporting , negotiations and planning for the post-conflict period. Without adequate preparation of all stakeholders involved in, or supporting, the negotiation process, a national level settlement may be undermined by local level HLP grievances and conflicts. In the alternative scenario, in which there is no national level agreement, an alternative strategy for sensitizing actors to HLP risks and opportunities will nonetheless be required..."

With government deception rampant, independent voices are crucially important."
