Internal conflict in Burma
TNI-BCN Project on Ethnic Conflict in Burma
Transnational Institute (TNI), Burma Centrum Nederland (BCN)...
This joint TNI-BCN project aims to stimulate
strategic thinking on addressing ethnic conflict
in Burma and to give a voice to ethnic nationality
groups who have until now been ignored
and isolated in the international debate on the
Border Guard Forces (all states)
The armed groups which agreed ceasefires in the late '80s and the '90s but kept their arms and armies, are being asked by the SPDC to integrate their forces into the Burma Army as "Border Guard Forces". Some have agreed, but the larger ones have not.
