Title: Natural Disaster and Humanitarian Assistance in Asia: The Case of Myanmar
Date of publication: October 2009
Description/subject: Introduction: "In May 2008, the international community was frustrated with Myanmar’s1 resistance to humanitarian access after the country was hit by the large-scale cyclone named ‘Nargis.’ Western nations as well as neighboring countries tried to persuade the military government to open up the country and to let in aid supplies and rescue personnel, however, the junta refused to accept them. Myanmar criticized the humanitarian access, calling it ‘humanitarian intervention.’ This paper looks further into the Myanmar case, focusing on political negotiations among the international community, regional community and Myanmar. The Myanmar case is the first in which controversy over humanitarian access after a natural disaster occurred, and it involves the principle of the ‘Responsibility to Protect’ (generally called the ‘R2P’)2 vulnerable people from crimes against humanity. In this case, a number of Western nations asked for the invocation of the R2P principle proposing that the UN Security Council should pass a resolution to authorize emergency relief delivery and impose this on Myanmar if the junta was either unwilling or unable to cope, and where significant loss of life had occurred.

This paper makes a modest attempt to answer that question..."
