Title: WMO GREENHOUSE GAS BULLETIN (September 2014)
Date of publication: 09 September 2014
Description/subject: The State of Greenhouse Gases in the Atmosphere....."...the U.N.’s weather outfit, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), issued its annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin. It offered a shocking climate-change update: the concentrations of long-lasting greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere (carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide) rose at a “record-shattering pace” from 2012 to 2013, including the largest increase in CO2 in 30 years -- and there was a nasty twist to this news that made it even grimmer. While such increases reflected the fact that we continue to extract and burn fossil fuels at staggering rates, something else seems to be happening as well. Both the oceans and terrestrial plant life act as carbon sinks; that is, they absorb significant amounts of the carbon dioxide we release and store it away. Unfortunately, both may be reaching limits of some sort and seem to be absorbing less. This is genuinely bad news if you’re thinking about the future warming of the planet..." (Tom Dispatch.com)

Unfortunately, both may be reaching limits of some sort and seem to be absorbing less. This is genuinely bad news if you’re thinking about the future warming of the planet. (As it happens, in the same period, according to the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, parts of the American public stopped absorbing information in no less striking fashion: the number of those who believe that global warming isn’t happening rose 7% to 23%.)..."

Title: SOUTH-EAST ASIA IRREGULAR MARITIME MOVEMENTS January – June 2014
Date of publication: June 2014
Description/subject: "Irregular maritime movements of mixed populations that include persons of concern to UNHCR have been prevalent in the Asia- Pacific region for many years, but movements through South-East Asia, largely originating from the Bay of Bengal, have increased at a particularly rapid rate following inter-communal violence in Myanmar in June 2012. Since then, some 87,000 people are estimated to have departed by sea from the Bangladesh- Myanmar border area.  This trend has continued through the first half of 2014, during which the main route of irregular maritime movement in South-East Asia remained the journey through the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea f rom the Bangladesh- Myanmar maritime border to the Malaysia-Thailand ma ritime border. Other irregular maritime movements passing through South- East Asia followed routes through the Indian Ocean from South Asia and Indonesia to Australia, and across the Strait of Malacca from Malaysia to I ndonesia.  Although the precise number of people travelling on such routes is unknown and likely much greater than what has been reported , UNHCR is aware of over 20,000 irregular maritime departures from the Bangl adesh-Myanmar border area in the first half of 2014, in addition to hund reds who have attempted the boat journey to Australia.  Given the high proportion and total number of perso ns of concern to UNHCR departing by sea from the Bangladesh-Myanmar border , as well as a lack of access to those who travelled along other routes, t his report largely focuses on the journey between the Bangladesh-Myanmar borde r and the Malaysia- Thailand border.  Irregular maritime movements are by their nature cl andestine, making the data on such movements difficult to independently v erify. The information in this report is compiled from various sources, inclu ding direct interviews with persons of concern, implementing partners, media re ports, and governments"

Description/subject: "Dr. Ba Maw, first Burman to be Prime Minister of Burma under the British in the thirties, Head of State during the Japanese occupation in the Second World War, member of the British Bar, practicing lawyer and leading politician and statesman in Burma for more than forty years, gives us in this book an invaluable record and analysis of the struggle of an Asian people against foreign domination and their search for a way to freedom and independence. The record is invaluable because it is unique. It is unique on two counts: there is no one else who for so long a time has been so thoroughly involved in the working out of the patterns that unfold in these pages; and it is also the highly personal account of a sensitive, intelligent, and humane man who for a time exercised total power within the limits of a military occupation of his country..."

Title: Media suppression imperils Myanmar reform
Date of publication: 18 August 2014
Description/subject: "...News is a big part of the average Myanmar citizen's daily life. Over 300 newspapers and journals feed the country's seemingly insatiable appetite for news. Yet despite recent progress in press freedoms, the country's media landscape remains delicate, with previous reforms now dangling by a thread. In July, the jailing on national security charges of five Unity Journal journalists, including the paper's chief executive, sparked an international uproar. They each received a hefty 10-year sentence for violating the 1923 State Secrets Act for publishing a report exposing an alleged secret chemical weapons factory. Fifty local journalists who protested their incarceration have since faced freedom of assembly-related charges. This followed the very public deportation of an Australian journalist working for the once exiled anti-government Democratic Voice of Burma. A group of journalists at the Bi Mon Te Nay news journal are being held in pre-trial detention and face criminal charges that carry potential prison terms for publishing an activist group statement that said opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi had formed an interim government. They were initially charged with violating the more severe 1950 Emergency Act..."

Title: Misremembrance of an Uprising (Review of "The 1988 Uprising in Burma" by Dr Maung Maung)
Date of publication: 06 November 2009
Description/subject: Review of "The 1988 Uprising in Burma" by Dr Maung Maung (Foreword by Franklin Mark Osanka), Monograph 49/Yale Southeast Asia Studies...."...Dr Maung Maung's memoirs of the 1988 Burmese uprising "misremembers"; oft times it falsifies, misrepresents, distorts, obfuscates, whitewashes and can in its best light be described as an "apologia"in a fully uncomplimentary sense. Hence the author's "memory" hinders rather than helps the cause for human rights as far as the struggle is concerned. Nevertheless, from a consequentialist viewpoint, it is hoped that the publication of the book will help some people who were involved in, affected by or take a genuine and concerned interest in the events of 1988 in Burma- to rise from their "forgetfulness" and also to help properly freshen their memory. In this review, the reviewer has attempted to highlight some of the misremembrances of the author with the hope that a small step can be taken towards refreshing and articulating the "memory" of those who were and are affected by the 1988 uprising in Burma..."

Title: Position of Power and Notions of Empowerment: Comparing the Views of Lee Kuan Yew and Aung San Suu Kyi on Human Rights and Democratic Governance
Date of publication: 1997
Description/subject: "This essay compares the human rights views of two Asians who in their own ways have been influential not only on their own fellow countrypersons but whose influence extend beyond their national borders. It is submitted that both Lee Kuan Yew1, a Singaporean and Aung San Suu Kyi, a Burmese, have made their impact internationally And I further submit that their influence and impact are at least partly due to their ideas though of course, in the case of Lee Kuan Yew his influence is perhaps primarily due to Lee's role in the "miraculous transformation in Singapore's economy while maintaining tight political control over the country ... [resulting in] Singapore's per capita GNP [being] now higher than that of its erstwhile colonizer Great Britain". The comparison of Aung San Suu Kyi's and Lee's views on human rights and democracy should be of some relevance and interest in the light of increasingly substantial contemporary literature on democratisation and international law..."

Title: China, Myanmar: stop that train
Date of publication: 14 August 2014
Description/subject: "Since reports about the cancellation of a proposed US$20 billion railway line connecting China's southern Yunnan province with Myanmar's Rakhine western coast emerged in late July, conflicting accounts about the 1,200 kilometer project's status have raised new questions about the neighboring countries' commercial relations. The controversy erupted with a local news report quoting Myint Wai, director of Myanmar's Ministry of Rail Transportation, saying that the project had been "cancelled" after over three years of inaction on a 2011 agreement. A DPA report furthered the story by quoting an anonymous Myanmar government official saying the Kyaukpyu-Kunming railway was popularly perceived as having "more disadvantages than advantages" and was cancelled in line with the "people's desires". Yang Houlan, China's Ambassador to Myanmar, contradicted that report, saying China had not abandoned the project. The state mouthpiece China Daily underscored that official line, reporting that an "unidentified Myanmar economic official" said that the project only needs "continued coordination". The China Railway Engineering Corporation (CREC), the original Chinese investor in the project, meanwhile has been reluctant to respond to the conflicting reports... the railway is of strategic importance to China: it had been regarded as a key component of China's Trans-Asia railway network and a critical element for developing a southwest strategic corridor to the Indian Ocean, a route for crucial imports that bypassed the congested Malacca Strait and hotly contested South China Sea... cancellation of the multi-billion dollar railway project would indicate a further deterioration of Sino-Myanmar ties, despite Beijing's sustained bid to portray the relationship as strong and healthy..."

Title: Of pragmatism and politics
Date of publication: 14 August 2014
Description/subject: "China’s rise means the US will turn a blind eye to Burma’s limited democracy, writes Gareth Robinson... The recent upholding of constitutional rules preventing Aung San Suu Kyi from running in Burma’s 2015 presidential elections has prompted some strong criticism from Western governments. However, it is unlikely to damage America’s resolve to continue engaging with the country for one reason in particular; China’s rising power in the region. In a recent article for The Irrawaddy, journalist and long-time Burma hand Bertil Lintner argued that Western governments may be more interested in re-establishing defence ties with Burma’s military, the Tatmadaw, than with pursuing political and human rights issues. It is an argument supported by the State Department’s muted response to Aung San Suu Kyi’s continued barring from presidential elections. Although the department did issue a statement calling for constitutional reforms to be adopted, there was no threat of introducing new sanctions or of downgrading diplomatic ties. The US’s continuing support for the Burmese hybrid civilian-military government is a clear sign that Washington’s concern over China’s growing regional presence is of greater importance than democratic reform. In the past China has exerted a great deal of influence over Burma. After much of the world abandoned the country due to the annulment of democratic elections in 1990, China continued to provide significant economic and military aid to keep Burma afloat. This wasn’t resisted by the US because it did not perceive strong strategic interests in the country after the end of the Cold War. Since the opening of Burma to external economic and political input after the 2010 national elections, China has lost its exclusive access to the country. Now, Burma may become a rook in America’s attempts to mediate Chinese expansion...Given the time and attention, Burma could become one of America’s middle power partners in Asia. But this may cost the US its commitment to seeing the country become a fully functional and effective democracy..."

Title: Myanmar, ASEAN, and the China Challenge
Date of publication: 07 August 2014
Description/subject: As this year’s ASEAN Chair, Myanmar will face pressure from the pro- and anti-China camps...As Myanmar gears up to host this weekend’s ASEAN Regional Forum, it may find that its role is both a blessing and a curse. While Myanmar welcomes its chance in the spotlight as ASEAN Chair, that role is increasingly difficult to play. Maritime disputes in the South China Sea threaten to turn each ASEAN meeting into a tug of war between anti- and pro-China forces...Myanmar’s role as ASEAN Chair is a huge diplomatic headache. The ASEAN Chair wields enormous influence over ASEAN meetings, and there’s a lot of pressure for the host nation to fall in line with either the anti-China or pro-China camps. In 2010, for example, Vietnam made the South China Sea disputes a major issue in regional summits (much to China’s dismay). By contrast, in 2012, Cambodia scuttled talks rather than allow the maritime disputes to dominate the agenda. This pressure is multiplied for Myanmar. On the one hand, the country is making concerted efforts to improve its relations with other ASEAN members, and with the West, which adds pressure not to sideline the South China Sea disputes. On the other hand, China remains incredibly important to Myanmar, especially economically—China remains Myanmar’s largest trading partner and largest source of foreign direct investment. An anti-China ASEAN summit could have huge economic and political ramifications for Myanmar..."

Title: The Strategic Importance of Myanmar for India
Date of publication: 12 August 2014
Description/subject: "...If India is to become an assertive regional player in Asia, it has to work toward developing policies that would improve and strengthen it domestically, which will encourage more confidence in its ability to lead the region and be an important global player. Competition with China should also be considered and taken seriously. China’s growing influence in the region would lead to a more one-sided dynamic in the region. China has asserted itself through its soft power as well as through its trade and economic relations with Myanmar by taking up large infrastructure projects in the country. India on the other hand needs to use its soft power more effectively, and at the same time strengthen itself domestically and regionally. There are several advantages that India has over China with regard to Myanmar. One is the democratic process, which results in different governments at the center and states through free and fair elections. There is also the respect for institutions that are strong enough to hold the country together. Finally, cooperation in different multilateral forums such as ASEAN and BIMSTEC strengthen the relationship between the two countries. Apart from these reasons, India has sent a clear signal that while economic ties are important, it is keen to build a holistic relationship and is prepared to assist in institution building in Myanmar..."

Title: The New Thailand-Myanmar Axis
Date of publication: 29 July 2014
Description/subject: "With China’s backing, post-coup Thailand and Myanmar– ASEAN’s quasi-democracies– are moving closer together...The Thai military staged a coup on May 22, claiming to restore peace and order after months of protests against the elected government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. In reality, it was a military scheme to take control of politics ahead of an uncertain royal succession. In the process, it destroyed democratic institutions and violated the people’s human rights. Immediately after the coup, an army of Western countries voiced their concern about the disappearance of democratic space. Subsequently, they imposed “soft sanctions,” with the United States suspending its financial support for the Thai military and the European Union freezing all cooperation with the kingdom. Amid international sanctions, the Thai junta has found some comfort in the warm embrace of China. Shortly after the coup, photos surfaced of Army Chief, General Prayuth Chan-ocha– who’s also serving as the interim prime minister– shaking hands with Chinese business owners, demonstrating the Thai tactic of employing China to counterbalance Western sanctions. But China is not Thailand’s only friend in its time of need. On July 4, Myanmar Supreme Commander Senior General Min Aung Hlaing paid a visit to Bangkok, making him the first leader from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to meet the Thai junta after the coup. He held a cozy discussion with Prayuth, purportedly to strengthen ties between Thailand and Myanmar. Disturbingly, Min Aung Hlaing praised the Thai junta for “doing the right thing” in seizing power. He also compared his country’s experience during the political upheaval that took place in Yangon in 1988, when the tatmadaw, or Myanmar’s army, launched deadly crackdowns against pro-democracy activists..."

Title: Myanmar: A new dawn (video)
Date of publication: 21 August 2014
Description/subject: As Myanmar emerges slowly from five decades of dictatorship, will it ever catch up with its more prosperous neighbours?...After almost half a century of authoritarian rule, Myanmar (or Burma) is gradually coming in from the cold, dark years of repression and dictatorship giving way to new industries and culture – driven by both, the growing interest of foreign investors and the gradual softening of political criticism and sanctions from the US, Europe and others...However, ... there still is a clear divide between those benefiting from the new world, and those struggling to survive in old Burma. Prosperity – or anything approaching it – is still a long way off. Most of Myanmar's 60 million people have yet to experience the full benefits of that growing freedom and the country – though rich in natural resources - remains one of most deprived in the world...Thanks to a wide range of newspapers now available the population is becoming better informed but on a practical level although some adventurous entrepreneurs are prepared to take a risk on new start-ups and business ventures, most people do not even have the money to fund their child's education..."

Accordingly, Myanmar's government is pushing the country's armed ethnic groups to sign a new nationwide ceasefire this year..."

Title: U.S. Waives Sanctions on Myanmar Timber
Date of publication: 14 August 2014
Description/subject: "...Civil society groups are split over a decision by the U.S. government to waive sanctions on Myanmar’s timber sector for one year. The decision, which went into effect late last month, is being hailed by some as an opportunity for community-led and sustainability initiatives to take root in Myanmar, where lucrative forestry revenues have long been firmly controlled by the military and national elites. The European Union, too, is currently working to normalise its relations with the Myanmarese timber sector. “The concern is that the system that is gaining traction with the international timber industry is to bypass any national systemic forestry reform process.” -- Kevin Woods of Forest Trends Yet others are warning that Washington has taken the decision too soon, before domestic conditions in Myanmar are able to support such a change..."

Title: A COMPARISON OF THE FIRST AND FIFTIETH YEAR OF INDEPENDENT BURMA'S LAW REPORTS
Date of publication: 2004
Description/subject: "This article compares the annual Law Reports of the first year of Burmese independence in 1948 with those published in the fiftieth year of Burmese independence (1998). In making the comparison, the author highlights the fundamental changes that occurred in the structure and composition of the highest courts in Burma, along with relevant background and factors effecting these changes. There was a movement away from the predominant use of English in 1948 towards judgments exclusively in Burmese in the 1998 Law Reports. Burma's neighbours, who shared a common law legal heritage, did not follow this trend after their independence. This shift, combined with Burma's isolation from the rest of the world, makes analysis of Burmese case law from the past three and a half decades very difficult for anyone not proficient in the Burmese language. This article tries to fill the lacunae as far as the Law Report from the fiftieth year of Burma's independence is concerned."

Title: Woe Unto Ye Lawyers: Three Royal Orders Concerning Pleaders in Early Seventeenth-Century Burma*
Date of publication: 2000
Description/subject: "This Article is a discussion of three Royal Orders of King Anauk Hpet Lun of Burma (Ava as it was then also known) in the early seventeenth century. All of the three royal orders dealt with issues regulating (and reprimanding) shay-nay (pleaders/lawyers). In fact the three Royal Orders concerning pleaders were issued on a single day: 23 June 1607 AD. The Royal Orders were proclaimed by King Anauk Phet Lun who was the second king of the Nyaung Yan dynasty, which lasted from 1597 to 1754. The “source” where these Royal Orders were found by this author is from the first volume of the ten-volume The Royal Orders of Burma AD 1598-1885 compiled and translated by Dr. Than Tun, Emeritus Professor of History at Mandalay University, Burma..."

Title: Burma and the Road Forward: Lessons from Next Door and Possible Avenues Towards Constitutional and Democratic Development
Date of publication: 25 July 2013
Description/subject: "The chapter of authoritarian rule may finally be ending in Burma’s complicated narrative. The Burmese government has taken visible steps towards democratic reform. Despite reports of military control and intimidation at the polls,the country transitioned to civilian rule in 20103 after fifty years of control by a military junta. The government also released the country’s preeminent democratic leader and icon, Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been on house arrest sporadically since 1989. Rapid political reforms soon followed. The ability to reconcile Burma’s political history and transition to a democracy will be a challenging one. A successful transformation requires more than legal formalism; legal formalism cannot work without the development of a civil society. However, legal formalism, as Suu Kyi has urged, ensures a rule of law that will allow Burmese citizens, including minority groups, to protect themselves from their government’s historical abuse of power. This Comment discusses how the expansion of legal rights for individuals and minorities is the direct way for Burma to secure a democratic future..."

Title: U Kyaw Lin v. Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma (English, Burmese/ ျမန္မာဘာသာ)
Date of publication: 20 September 1978
Description/subject: "...The charges against the appellant U Kyaw Lin in regards to the U Thant funeral incident are that he was in violation of Penal Code section 143 to the extent that the defendants defied an order of the Rangoon Municipality in gathering with the common object of jointly upsetting law and order as participants in an unlawful assembly; in violation of Penal Code section 447 as this crowd invaded and occupied the Rangoon University campus and Convocation Hall without relevant authorization and starting in the schoolrooms of the buildings held meetings and conducted a host of activities; and, in violation of Penal Code sections 124(A)/149 as some students and some members of the monkhood gave anti-government speeches at the Convocation Hall and site of the former student union building, and printed and distributed seditious pamphlets. 3 It emerged from the testimonies of prosecution witnesses that in regards to the U Thant funeral matter the appellant U Kyaw Lin from the beginning on 5-12-1974 acted as advisor to the Funeral Central Committee; and, that among writings to excite sedition wrote a letter in English to be sent to the United Nations. Nor has there been refutation of these charges. It was submitted [by the defendant] that the court could assign guilt however it pleased; and, that the police inquiry was illegal and on top of it, no firm evidence was presented..."

Title: Union of Myanmar v. U Ye Naung and Another
Date of publication: 08 April 1991
Description/subject: "...in finally acquitting the two defendants Ye Naung and Myint Oo (a.k.a.) Mya Oo of all charges the Supreme Court found that, “There is not any evidence against defendants Ye Naung and Myint Oo apart from their statement before Defence Services Intelligence. While it is correct that Defence Services Intelligence unit personnel are persons authorized to uncover and arrest criminal offenders and confessions made before them are admissible as evidence in Military Courts under Defence Services Rule 22(2)(3)(4), it is apparent that they are not admissible as evidence in 1991 The Union of Myanmar v. U Ye Naung & Another civilian courts under the Evidence Act, section 24”; thus the defendants finally acquitted on the basis of the finding on the Evidence Act, section 24, the Office of the Attorney General moved that in its understanding the finding does not correspond with the law for the Chief Justice with the Full Bench of the Supreme Court to undertake to re-examine the said finding in accordance with the Procedures for the Hearing of Special Appeals, paragraph 17, giving rise to this Special Appeal..."
