Title: Handbook on Habeas Corpus in Myanmar (English)
Date of publication: May 2016
Description/subject: "...International law guarantees the right of all individuals deprived of their liberty to an expeditious judicial procedure in which an independent and impartial court reviews the legality of their detention and orders the release of individuals wrongfully detained.1 This right is commonly referred to as ‘habeas corpus’ in legal systems that are based on common law. The right entitles anyone who is deprived of liberty by arrest or detention to take proceedings before a court, in order that the court may decide without delay on the lawfulness of the detention and order release if the detention is not lawful. The right to challenge the lawfulness of detention before a court is a self-standing human right, the denial of which constitutes a human rights violation. Habeas corpus protects personal liberty or physical integrity by means of a judicial decree ordering the appropriate authorities to bring the detained person before a judge so that the lawfulness of the detention may be determined and, if appropriate, the release of the detainee ordered. In Myanmar under military rule from 1962 until 2008, there was no effective mechanism to challenge the lawfulness of detention before a court. One of the major (and unanticipated) improvements in Myanmar’s 2008 Constitution was the reintroduction of the writ of habeas corpus. Since then, the government has passed an “Application of Writs Act 2014” and the Supreme Court has promulgated rules and procedures for its implementation. In order to assist and propel the process of judicial reform and strengthen the protection of human rights, the International Commission of Jurists provides this discussion of the law relevant to the writ of habeas corpus under international law as well as Myanmar’s current national law. The following are of particular significance: • Analysis of international standards for challenging arbitrary or unlawful arrest or detention (including that which results in torture and ill-treatment of detainees)... • Analysis of Myanmar’s current legal framework for the Constitutional writ of habeas corpus... • Analysis of the seemingly forgotten and underutilized procedure for challenging arbitrary arrest and detention (similar to the writ of habeas corpus) under Section 491 of the 1898 Code of Criminal Procedure... • Analysis of the few publicly available recent petitions for the writ of habeas corpus... • Analysis of relevant existing precedents (pre-1962) from the Myanmar judiciary’s case law on habeas corpus....."

Title: From Rice Bowl to Food Basket: Three Pillars for Modernizing Myanmar’s Agricultural and Food Sector
Date of publication: 06 April 2016
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "Myanmar is ready for change. This is particularly true of Myanmar’s rural sector, where 7 out of every 10 people live and most people in poverty reside. Over half are employed directly in agriculture, producing food for themselves, their communities, and for sale. Many others in rural areas – often without their own land – work hard in rural non-farm enterprises transporting produce, processing foods, and providing needed services. Others may migrate in search of work in Myanmar’s cities or abroad. Yet despite its location at the crossroads of the most economically dynamic region in the world, Myanmar has among the highest rates of poverty and malnutrition in the region. Myanmar’s Asian neighbors have shown that, in response to consumer demand for increasingly diversified diets as incomes and urbanization rise, investing in rural infrastructure and establishing policies to encourage their farmers to produce products that meet market needs will unleash a virtuous circle of growth among farmers, food processers, and service providers who are linked to growing urban centers and export markets. Raising productivity and diversifying from low-value grains into high-value meats, oilseeds, pulses, horticulture, and aquaculture stabilizes food expenditures for increasingly urban consumers, raises incomes for rural areas, and strengthens competiveness in regional and global markets. Among Asian neighbors, it has helped raise millions of rural people out of hunger and poverty. Myanmar is ready to seize that promise for its own future. Myanmar needs to break away from a legacy of policies that have held back, rather than stimulated, its farmers’ potential. A mind-set change is needed to step out of the business-as-usual approach that focused on supply-led, yield increases and domestic food self-sufficiency. Agriculture policy needs to shift to an innovative vision that centers on a demand-led approach driven by domestic consumers and foreign markets with increased productivity throughout the sector. To succeed in practice, narrow silos of thinking and communication among the government, the private sector, and civil society should be broken down to encourage more harmonious and coordinated efforts. This new Vision is inherent in the title of this White Paper – moving from rice bowl to a food basket for Myanmar and increasingly to the rest of Asia (and the world). The aim is to improve the incomes and livelihoods of rural communities while increasing the availability of more stable, diversified, and nutritious diets to consumers. This objective can be achieved by empowering smallholder farmers, equipping them with knowledge and technical inputs, and connecting them to urban and global markets. vi In place of a government-driven focus on crop production targets, the paper offers a concrete and systematic strategy for how Myanmar can modernize its agricultural and food sector. The strategy embraces market-oriented, private sector-led investment, innovation, and dynamism that is centered on small farmers throughout the country. It requires forward-looking and efficient government policies and institutional support with greater interaction among key stakeholders characterized by full transparency and accountability..."

Title: A SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS OF DISASTER RISK REDUCTION IN MYANMAR
Date of publication: June 2013
Description/subject: "Myanmar is exposed to a wide range of natural hazards, triggering different types of small scale to large-scale disasters across the country’s territory. A total of 27 natural disasters have been recorded between 1980 and 2010, causing the death of approximately 140,000 people, and affecting the lives and livelihoods of 3.9 million people; an average of 125,000 people a year. By far the most devastating natural disaster in Myanmar’s history, cyclone Nargis tore through the Delta region in May 2008, affecting 2.4 million people and claiming the lives of 135,000“.

Title: New study adds urgency to concerns about drug-resistant malaria
Date of publication: 25 June 2016
Description/subject: "The rapid decline in effectiveness of a widely used anti-malaria drug treatment on the Thai-Burmese border is linked to the increasing prevalence of specific mutations in the malaria parasite itself, according to a paper published in the Clinical Infectious Disease Journal. The mutations in specific regions of the parasite’s kelch gene — which are genetic markers of artemisinin resistance — were the decisive factor, the authors say, in the selection of parasites that are also resistant to mefloquine. This resulted in the growing failure of the widely-used anti-malaria drug combination of mefloquine and artesunate, the first artemisinin combination therapy (ACT) used on the Thai-Burmese border. Led by Dr Aung Pyae Phyo of the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU), the study used data from a 10-year study of 1,005 patients with uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria at SMRU clinics on the border. “This study demonstrates for the first time that artemisinin resistance leads to failure of the artemisinin partner drug, in this case, mefloquine,” says Prof François Nosten, director of SMRU. “This means that the first line artemisinin combination therapy introduced here in 1994 has finally fallen to resistance,” he said..."

Title: Thai PM Supports Delayed Burmese Refugee Return|
Date of publication: 24 June 2016
Description/subject: "Burma should be given more time to prepare to take back refugees, said Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, a former commander-in-chief of the Royal Thai Army. Speaking ahead of Burma’s State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi’s three-day visit to Thailand, which began on Thursday, Gen Prayut said talks between Thailand and Burma over refugee matters began during the previous administration and the government believes that, when Burma is ready, it will take the refugees back. “[Burma] is willing to take back the refugees but we have to give them more time to prepare for such considerations as securing land to accommodate those who return. We understand each other,” the Thai prime minister said. There are currently about 100,000 Burmese refugees in nine camps and shelters in Thailand, he said..."

Title: Analysis of Customary Communal Tenure of Upland Ethnic Groups, Myanmar
Date of publication: 26 July 2015
Description/subject: Customary Tenure and Land Alienation in Myanmar: "Customary communal tenure is characteristic of many local upland communities in S.E. Asia. These communities have strong ancestral relationships to their land, which has never been held under individual rights, but considered common property of the village. Communal tenure has been the norm and land has never been a commodity. This is an age-old characteristic of many societies globally. Prior to the publication in 1861 of Ancient Law by the English jurist Henry Sumner Maine, the accepted view among Western jurists in the nineteenth century had been that the origin of the concept of property was the occupation of land by a single proprietor and his family. However, Maine insisted that for India, for example, “it is more than likely that joint ownership, and not separate ownership, is the really archaic institution, and that the forms of property that will afford us instruction will be those that are associated with the rights of families and of groups of kindred.”1 The international recognition of this had earlier emerged in developed countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada and it became manifest in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2007. The Declaration specifies individual and collective rights of indigenous peoples, as well as their rights to culture, identity, language, land and natural resources, employment, health, education and other issues. It was voted for in the UN by 144 countries, including Myanmar. In Myanmar customary tenure arrangements date back centuries. They are linked to the characteristics of the landscape and its resources, to the kinship systems, to population density and to the actual history of the area and settlement. In general the ethnic upland villagers’ identity is clearly linked to the land constituting a dense network of particular places, each having different cultural and material value and containing a mosaic of resources. There is an inner connection between history, identity and land..."

Title: MIMU Disaster Risk Reduction Sector - English, Burmese (ျမန္မာဘာသာ)
Description/subject: "The Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group (DRR WG) was formed in 2008 during the early recovery phase of Cyclone Nargis to support the Government and communities to promote disaster resilience in Myanmar. Since then, the DRR WG has evolved as one of the most diverse and dynamic networks in the country, currently comprising of 53 agencies including the UN, international NGOs, local NGOs and professional organisations working for DRR. The DRR WG is led by an 11 member Steering Committee which includes three UN agencies, three international NGOs, three local NGOs, the Myanmar Red Cross Society and one professional organization. The DRR WG Chair is selected from the Steering Committee and currently UNDP is the chair. Director General of Relief and Resettlement Department (RRD), the focal department for disaster management as well as the secretariat of the National Disaster Management Working Committee (NDMWC), is the honorary chair of the DRR Working Group. The DRR Sub-Sector Working Group (DRR SSWG) which is co-chaired by the RRD and UNDP, includes a member from an international organisation, a local NGO, a professional organisation and the Myanmar Red Cross, which are also members of the DRR WG. In 2013, the DRR WG developed its 2014-18 Strategic Framework and Plan which aims to * strengthen the policy and institutional framework for DRR; build capacities of government officials to implement DRR and mainstream DRR into development; * support the government to develop a community-based disaster risk reduction framework and a public awareness strategy on DRR; * engage with and strengthen capacities of local NGOs working on DRR; * build partnerships with the private sector and academia and * strengthen the internal coordination of the DRR WG so that effective support is provided to the government..."

Meltwater tends to stabilize the ocean column, inducing amplifying feedbacks that increase subsurface ocean warming and ice shelf melting. Cold meltwater and induced dynamical effects cause ocean surface cooling in the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic, thus increasing Earth's energy imbalance and heat flux into most of the global ocean's surface. Southern Ocean surface cooling, while lower latitudes are warming, increases precipitation on the Southern Ocean, increasing ocean stratification, slowing deepwater formation, and increasing ice sheet mass loss. These feedbacks make ice sheets in contact with the ocean vulnerable to accelerating disintegration. We hypothesize that ice mass loss from the most vulnerable ice, sufficient to raise sea level several meters, is better approximated as exponential than by a more linear response. Doubling times of 10, 20 or 40 years yield multi-meter sea level rise in about 50, 100 or 200 years. Recent ice melt doubling times are near the lower end of the 10–40-year range, but the record is too short to confirm the nature of the response. The feedbacks, including subsurface ocean warming, help explain paleoclimate data and point to a dominant Southern Ocean role in controlling atmospheric CO2, which in turn exercised tight control on global temperature and sea level. The millennial (500–2000-year) timescale of deep-ocean ventilation affects the timescale for natural CO2 change and thus the timescale for paleo-global climate, ice sheet, and sea level changes, but this paleo-millennial timescale should not be misinterpreted as the timescale for ice sheet response to a rapid, large, human-made climate forcing. These climate feedbacks aid interpretation of events late in the prior interglacial, when sea level rose to +6–9 m with evidence of extreme storms while Earth was less than 1 °C warmer than today. Ice melt cooling of the North Atlantic and Southern oceans increases atmospheric temperature gradients, eddy kinetic energy and baroclinicity, thus driving more powerful storms. The modeling, paleoclimate evidence, and ongoing observations together imply that 2 °C global warming above the preindustrial level could be dangerous. Continued high fossil fuel emissions this century are predicted to yield (1) cooling of the Southern Ocean, especially in the Western Hemisphere; (2) slowing of the Southern Ocean overturning circulation, warming of the ice shelves, and growing ice sheet mass loss; (3) slowdown and eventual shutdown of the Atlantic overturning circulation with cooling of the North Atlantic region; (4) increasingly powerful storms; and (5) nonlinearly growing sea level rise, reaching several meters over a timescale of 50–150 years. These predictions, especially the cooling in the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic with markedly reduced warming or even cooling in Europe, differ fundamentally from existing climate change assessments. We discuss observations and modeling studies needed to refute or clarify these assertions"......

Title: Photo Essay: Mae Tao Clinic moves to new grounds
Date of publication: 18 June 2016
Description/subject: "The existing grounds of Mae Tao are a mixture of concrete slabs and dirt roadways between the various buildings. The grounds are cramped, with patients and health professionals weaving around potholes, stray dogs and open drains. The new grounds will have proper drainage and leveled concrete ground running between buildings. Donations from the Japanese government made it possible for Mae Tao clinic to buy the land for the new clinic. The border clinic relies on donations for its operating expenses, and Dr Cynthia says that although more aid is being directed into Burma, it’s important for the international community not to forget the cross-border services vital for displaced people.he new grounds will provide services that are unique to the Mae Tao Clinic, including two free meals a day and accommodation for patients and their families during treatment..."

Title: Myanmar is facing, in certain areas, a serious problem with landmines’
Date of publication: 11 June 2016
Description/subject: "...What assistance has the ICRC been providing to IDPs in Kachin and Shan states? I have had the opportunity to see two camps and a settlement where displaced people are living. One in Myitkyina, where people have been living for several years, and then two in Kutkai in northern Shan State, where displaced people had just arrived. I really feel that there is quite a difference in terms of living standards in one camp where there are people newly arrived. There, we provide emergency assistance. Whereas in Myitkyina we support livelihoods, for instance, in providing cash grants, so that people can open their own shop, earn their own money and stand on their own feet. What short- and long-term aid does the ICRC provide to IDPs? In the short term, it is basically humanitarian assistance, for instance the provisions of shelters. It was the first need that I saw in the camps that I visited in the north of Kutkai and we provided material to every family to build shelters. Then, it is about improving access to water, access to health care and to basic food. In order to provide access to food items, for instance, we distribute cash to every family every month so that they can buy their own food. We provide K7,000 per person per month. For a family of five, it’s K35,000 per month..... For the longer term, we develop other supports for families who show interest in developing economic projects, what we call conditional cash grants. With that money, I saw families in a camp in Myitkyina who opened their own shops, for instance, small grocery shops, or started to raise pigs. .....We have a program called Weapon Contamination [to raise awareness among the public]. We have specialists who are working with Myanmar Red Cross volunteers to sensitise the population on the risks of mines. Myanmar is not a signatory to the mine-ban convention known as the Ottawa Treaty. In our sensitisation work with the army and the armed groups, we very much base our arguments on the fact that we say that we understand why they use it for defence. But the problem is that if you use landmines, they will be there for a long time, and 30 years after, even if there is peace they might explode. So you are really creating a problem that will last for many decades and that will make the lives of people in these areas extremely difficult for a very long time. Landmines are a weapon that have lasting consequences. We see it in countries like Colombia, Afghanistan, even in Bosnia there are still landmines more than 20 years after the end of the conflict and people are at risk of getting hurt or their livestock affected. I think Myanmar is facing, not the whole country, but in certain areas, a serious problem with landmines. So our work consists not only of physical rehabilitation but also to encourage all parties to conflict to address this issue urgently, to start talks in order to clear the affected areas of mines so the population will be able to use the land for farming, to have access to water and grazing land. We are ready to help..."

Title: Building a better police force
Date of publication: 13 June 2016
Description/subject: "The Myanmar Police Force is understaffed, under-resourced and unliked but there are plans to improve its image through better training in a joint project with the UN Office on Drugs and Crime...The image of the Myanmar Police Force has long been tarnished by a reputation for corruption and brutality. The world watched appalled as police bashed protesters at Letpadan just over a year ago. It is common knowledge that suspects are often assaulted after being arrested. Deaths in custody are not unknown. Sex workers, gay and transgender suspects have been sexually assaulted at police stations, and there have been incidents when the police were curiously reluctant to intervene in incidents, such as when communal violence raged at Meiktila in March 2013. “The calibre of Myanmar police is the lowest in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, let alone the international level,” said an MPF officer who participated in a US$10 million police reform program launched by the European Union in late 2013 that included training in crowd management and human rights. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity. After the National League for Democracy government took office it launched a reform initiative for its first 100 days that included an emphasis on the rule of law and raising the image of the MPF..."

Title: How powerless are Myanmar's military legislators?
Date of publication: 05 June 2016
Description/subject: "...Notwithstanding the recent consolidation of the military bloc, a series of bold moves by the NLD under its leader, State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, have highlighted a reality often overlooked. Despite their automatic seat allocation, military representatives cannot block ordinary legislation. While the military contingent holds a constitutional veto by virtue of the 75% "supermajority" required for any charter amendments, it does not hold a blanket legislative veto. All other bills only require a simple majority vote. In effect, with the majority gained from its resounding victory in the 2015 polls, the NLD can ram through legislation, as long as the new laws do not alter constitutional rule. Likewise, proposals drafted by military members of parliament can only be adopted with the NLD's approval..."

Title: WE WANT GENUINE PEACE - Voices of communities from Myanmar’s ceasefire areas, 2015
Date of publication: 26 February 2016
Description/subject: "...Since 2011, the Myanmar Government has embarked on a peace process that seeks to put an end to one of the world's longest and most protracted civil wars. The complexity of the more than six-decades of conflict is rooted mainly in the multiplicity of actors involved; the Myanmar conflict involves fighting between the Myanmar Government's armed forces, domestically known as the Tatmadaw, and over fifteen active non-state armed groups (NSAGs), fighting in different locations all over the country. Forming the bedrock of the peace process are the bilateral agreements signed between the Myanmar government and fifteen NSAGs (see Annex 1). The peace process has to address several long-standing issues. Apart from institutionalising deep-seated resentments and mistrust, various counterinsurgency strategies employed in the different ethnic states that aimed at cutting off communication and trade between the NSAGs and civilian communities have effectively stunted economic and social development in most ethnic states. This has left behind a legacy of severe poverty and lack of communication and transportation infrastructure that remains a pressing problem today. In the midst of all these challenges are the communities living in the areas of the frontlines of battles. These populations are amongst the most affected by the ongoing conflict; they are also the first to feel and notice the effects of the various bilateral ceasefire agreements at the local level. The Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPCS) recognises the importance of accessing the voices of these communities to learn about how they have been affected, not only by the ongoing conflict but also by the ongoing peace process. Listening to the diverse voices of these communities and considering their experiences in the Myanmar peace process is crucial to finding solutions to address the long-standing problems that are at the heart of the violent conflicts. These voices also provide feedback to the negotiating parties on the positive and negative effects that the ongoing peace process is having on communities..."

Title: The Rohingya crisis (Echo Factsheet)
Date of publication: May 2016
Description/subject: "The Muslim minority living in western Myanmar/Burma's Rakhine State – at least 800 000 people – identify themselves as Rohingya. For decades they have suffered legal and social discrimination . While there are historical economic relations with the Buddhist Rakhine community there are also long-standing tensions between the two communities. The Rohingyas have been denied the right to citizenship and even the right to self-identify , and were stripped of their voting rights in the last national and local elections. They are also subject to many restrictions in day to day life: banned from travelling without authorization and prohibited from working outside their villages, they cannot even get married without permission from the authorities, and, because of movement restrictions, they lack sufficient access to livelihood opportunities, medical care and education. The number of children per couple is theoretically restricted to two but, because it cannot be enforced, there are thousands of children without any administrative existence..."
