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..."

Title: Game-Changers Ahead on The (Long) Maritime Silk Road
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)"

Title: Progresssive Voice
Description/subject: About Progressive Voice:- Vision: "Progressive Voice envisions a federal democratic Myanmar that is free of discrimination and upholds the principles of peace, justice and human rights... Mission: Our mission is to amplify the voices from the ground for a principled, rights-based policy narrative on Myanmar at a local, national and international level through participatory research, analysis and advocacy... Who We Are: Progressive Voice is a participatory rights-based policy research and advocacy organization rooted in civil society, that maintains strong networks and relationships with grassroots organizations and community-based organizations throughout Myanmar. It acts as a bridge to the international community and international policymakers by amplifying voices from the ground, and advocating for a rights-based policy narrative. Underpinning our work and identity is a commitment to human rights principles. We stand for the universality, inalienability and absolute nature of human rights, and do not discriminate against people on grounds of race, color, nationality, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, social standing, religion, political or other beliefs. We maintain a gender-inclusive staffing policy that also draws strength from the ethnic and religious diversity of its staff while also aiming to foster and develop a young generation of people of Myanmar, particularly from marginalized communities, that will take the organization forward in years to come as well as contributing to the discourse and work towards democracy in Myanmar. Decision-making is principled, collective and consensus-orientated within Progressive Voice, ensuring the values of inclusivity and active participation. Progressive Voice’s research is done ethically, following the principle of ‘do no harm.’ Based on this research, we produce independent and principled analysis that remains non-aligned and independent of any political parties and political and religious institutions. Progressive Voice focuses on three main thematic policy areas: (1) Governance Reforms, including political, democratic, constitutional, administrative and institutional reform; (2) Rule of Law, including access to justice, legislative and judicial reform, strengthening the space and work of civil society and human rights defenders, and protecting religious minorities; and (3) Sustainable Development, including labor rights, foreign investment, corruption, transparency and accountability. Human rights is a central issue that is reflected in all analyses, publications and policy recommendations... What We Do: Working and cooperating with disenfranchised, disempowered and marginalized communities and civil society organizations, to amplify their voices, and concerns, thereby filling the gap between policy needs on the ground and the policy-makers themselves. Conducting independent, participatory research and analysis to equip relevant stakeholders and decision-makers with principled, rights-based policy recommendations. Advocating for institutional and structural reforms that comply with international human rights law and standards as well as Myanmar’s international commitments and obligations..."
