Title: Discord, not devotion, will help Aung San Suu Kyi succeed - Myanmar's leader is burdened by deferential politics
Date of publication: 30 March 2017
Description/subject: "It is not surprising that at the end of the first year of the National League for Democracy government of Myanmar, led by State Counselor and party chairperson Aung San Suu Kyi, commentators have been quick to summarize the year negatively. After all, newspapers and blogs are more avidly read if they bring news of fresh disasters, not the mundane, nitty-gritty, of the hard slog of governing. However, in the case of Myanmar there are other causes for the several tales of woe that have emerged in recent days. The first is that the NLD had no experience of governing before taking power five months after the 2015 elections. Moreover, the NLD is not a political party of the kind we normally think of. It had no articulate and developed set of policy alternatives and no carefully conceived strategies of implementation, nor did it have an ideological drive to give it momentum to govern. Rather, after being suppressed for two decades, it emerged as a disjointed organization with only one goal -- replacing the military government. This it has only partially achieved, thanks to the artful way the army structured the constitution to ensure that it maintained the ability to control the pace of political change. Second is the lionized position of Suu Kyi..."

Title: Aung San Suu Kyi's quiet, puritanical vision for Myanmar - The state counselor focuses on moral principles rather than concrete solutions
Date of publication: 29 March 2017
Description/subject: "After one year in power, Aung San Suu Kyi has gone all but missing from the public ear. Her voice, long known for inspiring her people, is heard in only a handful of public appearances or daily private meetings with officials and foreign dignitaries, while there is nearly no interaction with the media. When she does occasionally address a public audience, she repeats abstract concepts such as "national reconciliation," "rule of law" and "peace." But what is even more noticeable in her speeches is a commanding and pedagogical rhetorical style underpinned by a puritanical political ideology. The latter shows a world view that values individual fulfillment of ta-wun (duties or responsibilities) rather than exercise of akwin-ahyeh (rights or entitlements)..."

Title: Aung San Suu Kyi's fall from grace
Date of publication: 08 December 2016
Description/subject: "The people of Myanmar have always been able to capture complex issues in pithy, often humorous, ways. One joke currently doing the rounds is that, after decades of trying to get into the driver’s seat of the rickety old bus that is modern Myanmar, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi has discovered that the steering wheel is not connected, the accelerator does not work and the passengers all want to go in different directions. Aung San Suu Kyi was never going to meet the expectations of her supporters, both in Myanmar and abroad. They were quite unrealistic, given all the problems she inherited on taking power in March. Every sector of government begged for drastic reform and increased resources. Added to that, several new challenges have arisen over the past eight months that have stretched her inexperienced administration almost to breaking point..."

Title: The wisdom in the literature
Date of publication: 21 March 2017
Description/subject: "Andrew Selth outlines why past generations’ accumulated literary and scholarly work on Myanmar is at risk of being lost — and what this might mean for the country’s future." ... "There is an old Myanmar saying that ‘wisdom is in the literature’.[1] This was particularly the case before 1988, when the country was virtually closed to foreigners and fieldwork of any kind was very difficult. The Internet was still in its infancy and Myanmar-watchers of all kinds were heavily reliant on books, serials and other documentary sources, both to acquire information and to present their findings to a wider audience. Access to Myanmar is now much easier and the past few decades have seen a flood of foreign officials, scholars and others intent on conducting primary research. As noted on New Mandala, this has contributed to a dramatic increase in the number of books, reports and articles written about the country. A new Griffith Asia Institute study lists over 1,800 monographs published in English alone, and in hard copy, over the past 25 years.[2] At the same time, however, there is an increasing danger that the accumulated knowledge of earlier generations of Myanmar-watchers will become dispersed, if not actually lost..."

Title: Suu Kyi’s Myanmar, one year on
Date of publication: 27 April 2017
Description/subject: "Twelve months ago, Aung San Suu Kyi was appointed State Counsellor of Myanmar, becoming the de facto leader of the National League for Democracy (NLD) Government that swept to power in (relatively) free and fair elections in 2015. Over the past several weeks, both the government and Suu Kyi herself have been subject to searching reviews by Myanmar-watchers and other commentators. To varying degrees, most have expressed disappointment with the NLD's performance during its first year in office. Even allowing for the unrealistically high expectations held both within and outside the country, the new government has failed to deliver on its promises. Foreign observers have been particularly critical of Suu Kyi's repeated refusal to intervene on behalf of the mostly stateless Muslim Rohingyas..."

Title: Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoir Water Surfaces: A New Global Synthesis
Date of publication: 05 October 2016
Description/subject: "Collectively, reservoirs created by dams are thought to be an important source of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to the atmosphere. So far, efforts to quantify, model, and manage these emissions have been limited by data availability and inconsistencies in methodological approach. Here, we synthesize reservoir CH4, CO2, and N2O emission data with three main objectives: (1) to generate a global estimate of GHG emissions from reservoirs, (2) to identify the best predictors of these emissions, and (3) to consider the effect of methodology on emission estimates. We estimate that GHG emissions from reservoir water surfaces account for 0.8 (0.5–1.2) Pg CO2 equivalents per year, with the majority of this forcing due to CH4. We then discuss the potential for several alternative pathways such as dam degassing and downstream emissions to contribute significantly to overall emissions. Although prior studies have linked reservoir GHG emissions to reservoir age and latitude, we find that factors related to reservoir productivity are better predictors of emission."

Title: Will Obama's Myanmar legacy survive under Trump?
Date of publication: 03 December 2016
Description/subject: "Treading between major powers, Myanmar is likely to continue its diplomatic balancing act... Aung San Suu Kyi was quick to congratulate U.S. president-elect Donald Trump on his recent victory, but there is no doubt that Myanmar's state counselor, her government and probably most of the country would have preferred to see Hillary Clinton installed in the White House next year. Not only was Clinton a driving force behind President Barack Obama's successful and farsighted policy of "pragmatic engagement" with Myanmar, but she was familiar with the country and established a personal rapport with Suu Kyi. Under a Clinton administration, Myanmar would have been treated very sympathetically by the U.S., which would have been appreciated by the state counselor and her fledgling National League for Democracy government as they struggle to cope with Myanmar's modernization and democratization. Naypyitaw has other good reasons to be grateful to the Obama administration, and Clinton in particular. During Suu Kyi's visit to Washington in September, for example, it was announced that economic sanctions against Myanmar would be lifted, in order to unleash the country's "enormous potential." Earlier, Obama had notified the U.S. Congress that he would be reinstating preferential tariffs for Myanmar under the Generalized System of Preferences, which provides duty-free access for goods from poor and developing countries. The future of the bilateral relationship under a Trump presidency is more difficult to predict. Specific policies are either unknown, or the subject of inconsistent statements. Some positions taken by the president-elect during his campaign have already been subject to unexpected reversals. A number of key executive appointments have yet to be made. Even so, it is possible to speculate about some Myanmar-related issues that are bound to arise after Trump takes office in January..."

Title: Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2016 - Burma
Date of publication: 03 March 2017
Description/subject: "Burma has a quasi-parliamentary system of government in which the national parliament selects the president, and constitutional provisions grant one-quarter of national, regional, and state parliamentary seats to active duty military appointees; all other seats are open to elections. The military also has the authority to appoint the ministers of defense, home affairs, and border affairs and assume power indefinitely over all branches of the government should the president declare a national state of emergency. In November 2015 the country held nationwide parliamentary elections that the public widely accepted as a credible reflection of the will of the people. The then opposition party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), chaired by Aung San Suu Kyi, won 390 of 491 contested seats in the bicameral parliament. Parliament elected NLD member U Htin Kyaw as president in March and created the position of State Counsellor for Aung San Suu Kyi in April, cementing her position as the country’s de facto leader. Civilian authorities did not maintain effective control over the security forces. In March the NLD government began its five-year governing term and, beginning in April, released hundreds of political prisoners. During the year civil society noted a sharp and significant, but by no means complete, improvement in their rights to freedom of speech and assembly. The three leading human rights problems in the country were human rights violations in ethnic minority areas affected by conflict, restrictions on freedoms of speech, and abuses against and restrictions on members of the Rohingya population. Authorities failed to protect civilians in conflict zones from killing, gross abuses, and displacement, but took some preliminary steps to address reports of abuses. While authorities returned approximately 20,000 Rohingya and other Muslim households displaced in 2012 communal violence to their locations of origin inside Rakhine State, more than 120,000 remained displaced in camps. An additional estimated 30,000 civilians were displaced due to the government’s security operations beginning in October in response to attacks by militants on Border Guard Police posts in Maungdaw, northern Rakhine State..."

Title: Burma (Myanmar) since the 1988 uprising: a select bibliography (2nd edition)
Date of publication: April 2015
Description/subject: "A bibliography is never complete. No matter how conscientious the compiler there will always be gaps and scope for additions , particularly to select bibliographies . In this regard , Burma ( renamed in the 2008 constitution as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar) is certainly no exception. Indeed, several developments over the past three years argue strongly for the preparation of an updated checklist of the English language literature on Burma. 1 Since the first edition of this work was released in July 2012, there has been an increased flow of new, revised and reprinted publications about Burma. A survey of publishers’ catalogues and booksellers’ websites suggests that this trend is set to continue for some time. This activ ity reflects a high level of interest in the country, not only in official and academic circles, but also among the wider public. This interest is likely to be maintained in 2015, when Burma’s hybrid civilian -military government is due to hold national ele ctions and, in early 2016, to choose a new president. The outcome of these competitions will be critical to the future of President Thein Sein’s ambitious reform program, launched in 2011, and to Burma’s relations with the wider world. As this edition of the bibliography helps to demonstrate, most of the public (and scholarly) interest in Burma over the past few years has been related to the country’s politics and economy, accounting for the large number of new works in those categories. This has included several important edited works, with chapters provided by a range of noted Burma watchers, covering such issues as the continuing political role of the armed forces, unresolved tensions with the ethnic minorities, the obstacles to further economic develop ment and the growth of civil society. Also, the increased number of postgraduates working on Burma in Western and other countries has led to specialised studies on areas and issues that, until now, had rarely been subject to close examination..."

Date of publication: 03 February 2017
Description/subject: "From the Bab al-Mandab to the strait of Malacca, from the strait of Hormuz to the strait of Lombok, all the way to the key logistical hub of Diego Garcia 2,500 miles southeast of Hormuz, the question pops up: How will the unpredictable new normal in Washington – which is not exactly China-friendly – affect the wider Indian Ocean? At play are way more than key chokepoints in an area that straddles naval supply chains and through which also flows almost 40% of the oil that powers Asian-Pacific economies. This is about the future of the Maritime Silk Road, a key component of the Chinese One Belt, One Road (OBOR), and thus about how Big Power politics will unfold in a key realm of the Rimland..."

Title: Myanmar: Health Care in a Changing National Landscape - Lessons, Challenges and Aspirations on the Way Forward
Date of publication: April 2017
Description/subject: "On the 30th anniversary of the foundation of the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU), a seminar was held on 13-14 December 2016 in Mae Sot, Thailand, to examine the theme, "Health care in a changing national landscape", with a focus on malaria, maternal health and TB/HIV. At a time of critical change, the SMRU anniversary marked an opportune moment to reflect, and look forward, on important issues in national transition in Myanmar at the junction between health, science, economics and politics. Attended by over 200 participants, the meeting represented a diversity of national backgrounds, specialisms and interests. The proceedings were mainly in English, and simultaneous translations were provided in Burmese, Karen and Thai languages. Discussion was under Chatham House Rules, but it was agreed that a position paper would be produced afterwards to summarise the main issues and conclusions during the meeting. To facilitate debate, panels were held on six themes: the changing landscape, community perspective, medical perspective, funding mechanisms and performances, looking forward, and conclusions. The aim was to promote analyses and ideas that address a number of basic health issues in relation to malaria, maternal health and TB/HIV. Areas of concern included the present status of health delivery, disease trends, community participation, the effectiveness of health-funding strategies, and ensuring that health care reaches to all peoples. Most of Myanmar’s population still needs access to proper health care..."

Title: ASSESSING CLIMATE RISK IN MYANMAR: Technical report 2017
Date of publication: March 2017
Description/subject: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "Myanmar’s climate is projected to shift dramatically in the coming decades, having a lasting and significant impact on Myanmar’s ecosystems and, in turn, on human health, agriculture, food security, infrastructure, local livelihoods and the larger economy. The climate risk information in this report, developed in collaboration with the Department of Meteorology (DMH) and in consultation with other key stakeholders, can aid adaptation and resilience planning across many sectors. This report presents climate risk information including observed climate and future projections of temperature, rainfall, sea level rise and various extreme events, and outlines how this information can be used in decision-making. It also describes how climate change will affect biodiversity and ecosystem services, coastal zones, health, agriculture, infrastructure, water resources and urban areas. Finally, it documents how climate risk information is being used by the Myanmar Climate Change Alliance (MCCA) to support local ecosystem-based adaptation planning in the delta and Dry Zone towns of Labutta and Pakkoku. It should be seen as a contribution to the broader work on climate change and official projections on temperature and precipitation being carried out by DMH and the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES) due to be released in the near future."

Title: The Border Consortium - 2016 Annual Report
Date of publication: 04 April 2017
Description/subject: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "This report covers the period January – December 2016. It outlines progress based on the Strategic Directions for Thailand and Burma/Myanmar 2013-2017. TBC’s programmes reached over 210,000 men, women, and children – 100,000 in nine refugee camps in Thailand, and 110,000 in 24 townships in SE Burma/Myanmar. After the National League for Democracy’s landslide victory in 2015, the new government was sworn in at the end of March 2016. Myanmar’s fi rst civilian president in over 50 years took up offi ce and a State Counsellor position was created for Aung San Suu Kyi with a portfolio that included foreign affairs and peacebuilding. NLD representatives were appointed as Chief Ministers in all States and Regions. The 21st Century Panglong Union Peace Conference (UPC) was held in August with participation of seventeen ethnic armed groups (EAGs). The conference raised a wide range of issues however, observers felt that little substantive movement occurred, highlighting the fact that the negotiation of a true peace will be a lengthy process. State-based Joint Ceasefi re Monitoring Committees (JMC) were created in Shan and Karen States as well as Tanintharyi Region with representatives from the ethnic armed groups, the Tatmadaw, Government, and civil society. However, confl ict escalated in Kachin and Northern Shan States resulting in over 120,000 people currently internally displaced. In Northern Rakhine State, a UN human rights report concluded that widespread violations against the Rohingya population indicated the very likely commission of crimes against humanity, resulting in 66,000 people fl eeing into Bangladesh and 22,000 being internally displaced. In Karen state, escalation of confl ict between the BGF and the DKBA led to the displacement of over 5,000 civilians and dampened hopes for an increase in refugee return during the dry season. In Thailand a referendum on the new constitution was passed in August, consolidating the National Council for Peace and Order’s power. On October 13th, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej passed away and the Royal Thai Government announced an offi cial mourning period for one year. The general election was further postponed to 2018. Bi-lateral talks on return of refugees were held between the Government of the Union of Myanmar and the Royal Thai Government and in October, the fi rst 71 refugees returned under a UNHCR facilitated voluntary return. At the end of December 98,745 refugees remained in camps; 5,237 departed for third country resettlement, some 2,300 spontaneously returned to Burma/Myanmar, and a further 1,050 were reported as seeking work opportunities in Thailand. TBC programmes highlighted return planning within an undefi ned timeframe, while continuing to ensure that limited resources were targeted to the most vulnerable in the communities. A Food Card system was piloted in two camps in place of in kind food assistance, increasing diversity in the diet and giving refugees more control over their resources. Expenses for 2016 were THB 736 M, compared to a budget of THB 754 M, refl ecting various downsizing/cost cutting measures that were implemented and commodity prices for most food and cooking fuel supplied were less than expected. TBC’s operating budget for 2017 is THB 701 M(USD 20 M)"
