Title: WAYS OF SEEING A PYU, MON AND DVARAVATI ARTISTIC CONTINUUM
Description/subject: "During the last 100 years artistic relationships between the Pyu and Mon of Burma and the Dvāravatī Mon of Thailand have been frequently hinted at yet until recently these ideas had not been explored further. In light of contemporary re-search, and in particular, relatively stable access to Burma, there is renewed interest in the cultures which inhabited the region extending from Upper Burma through Lower Burma and into central and south-west Thailand during the first millennium CE. Conventionally viewed as distinct cultural groups, on reappraising archaeological and historical re-search associated with the Pyu, Mon and Dvāravatī it is now suggested that these communities were more closely linked than traditionally thought."

Title: PRO-BUSINESS OR PRO-POOR? - MAKING SENSE OF THE RECENTLY UNVEILED DRAFT NATIONAL LAND USE POLICY
Date of publication: 23 October 2014
Description/subject: A joint preliminary assessment by TNI Myanmar Project and TNI Agrarian Justice Programme.....Summary: "October 18, 2014 saw the official unveiling by the government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar of its much-awaited draft national land use policy. Once it is finalized, the new policy will guide the establishment of a new overarching framework for the governance of tenure of land and related natural resources like forests for years to come. As such, it is of vital importance. This preliminary assessment aims to shed light on the key aspects of the draft policy and its potential implications for the country’s majority rural working poor, especially its ethnic minority peoples, although they are not the only ones whose future prospects hinge on how this policy making process will unfold. The scope of the policy is national and clearly intends to determine for years to come how land will be used – especially by whom and for what purposes – in lowland rural and urban areas as well. Focused critical engagement by civil society groups will likely be needed to ensure that the policy process addresses the concerns and aspirations of all rural working people system wide. Initial scrutiny suggests that those who see the land problem today as a problem of business and investment – e.g., how to establish a more secure environment particularly for foreign direct investments – are likely to be pleased with the draft policy. Those who think that the land problem goes deeper – e.g., implicating the social-ecological foundations of the country’s unfolding politi - cal-economic transition – are likely to be seriously concerned. This suggests that focused efforts at trying to influence the content and character of the draft policy are needed. The government’s decision to open the policy process to public participation is therefore a welcome one. Yet whether and to what extent this public consultation process will be truly free and meaningful remains to be seen"

Title: Plan to amend land use policy every five years to be added to bill
Date of publication: 23 October 2014
Description/subject: A provision allowing a change to the land use policy every five years has been put in the draft of the National Land Bill, according to U Shwe Thein, a consultant with the Land Use MANAGEMENTCommittee. U Shwe Thein said, “Unlike a ‘crony-law’, a policy cannot be used for many years [without amendment]. In the bill, we systematically put in a provision to change the policy every five years, and for the change to the policy to be based on research findings.” The clauses setting the standards and procedures to protect the land rights of the people, including the national ethnic people, will be contained in the land use policy, according to U Shwe Thein.

Title: A political anatomy of land grabs
Date of publication: 03 March 2014
Description/subject: The phrase “land grab” has become common in Myanmar, often making front page news. This reflects the more open political space available to talk about injustices, as well as the escalating severity and degree of land dispossession under the new government. But this seemingly simple two-word phrase is in fact very complex and opaque. It thus deserves greater clarity in order to better understand the deep layers of meaning to farmers in the historical political context of Myanmar. Understanding the deeper significance and meaning that farmers attach to the words “land grab” entails frank discussions of formerly taboo subjects related to the country’s history of armed conflict, illicit drugs, cronyism and racism. Various state and non-state armed actors have been responsible for land grabs in Myanmar during the past several decades, mirroring recent historical periods.

Title: Government and UNICEF to strengthen birth registration system in Myanmar
Description/subject: The births of three out of ten under five children in Myanmar have not been officially recorded. Nay Pyi Taw, 28th July 2014 : A National forum on accelerating birth registration in Myanmar was conducted at Thingaha Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw on 28th July 2014, a joint event between UNICEF and government ministries, to identify strategies for strengthening birth registration for all children in Myanmar. Birth registration is a critical first step towards the fulfilment of a whole range of children’s rights including entitlement to services such as health and education. Knowing the age of a person is central to protecting children from labour, forcible conscription in armed forces, child marriage and trafficking, and for ensuring they are dealt with appropriately by the justice system. A birth certificate may support the tracing and repatriation of children who are trafficked. All such issues are highly relevant to Myanmar.

Crown Prince Nyangyan sent state scholars to India, Europe and England, then used them to develop modern industry. Foreign workers were also employed. The Prince saw the need to forestall another attack by the British. Hence the Gun factory, Iron Foundry and Ship building had priority. How the machinery was procured and the factories developed is described in detail. The British were not pleased, yet even with the assassination of the Crown Prince in 1866 the work continued. But the British ended the effort after annexation and the factories were sold for scrap."

Anglo - Burmese War, 3rd 1885.....Annotation: "The Third Anglo Burmese War ended within a fortnight. Three important letters were found among the Sladen papers (i.e. Col. Sladen's collection now in the British Library). The letters are: 1. From Kin Wun Mingyi to the Chief Commissioner of British Burma. 2. From Ministers of the Hluttaw to the Myanmar Ambassador at Paris 3. From Hlay thin Atwin Wun to his men at Gwe Chaung. All were dated 11 November 1885. At that time General Prendergast had already crossed the frontier. The letters did not reach the addressees and they were of no avail. But at least they show Myanmar's last resort in trying to defend their sovereignty."

King Mindon ( 1852 - 78 ) governed Burma for nearly 26 years. His counselors were esteemed as they gave good advice and served him well in administering the country. The most famous were the Pakhan Wungyi, Kinwun Mingyi and Yaw Atwinwun. Mindon's Legislative Council was also powerful as they had the power to remove royal orders. The author believes that Myanmar counselors functioned well during King Mindon's reign and are a model for today."

Title: Hunting for Myanmar\'s hidden treasure
Date of publication: 17 October 2014
Description/subject: " Ramree Island, Myanmar - Zaw Myint looked quizzical as he sniffed a handful of grey sludge. He had just pulled the mud up from the bottom of an oil well he's digging on Myanmar's impoverished western coastline, hoping for the sweet whiff of black gold. "The money I get working here is good," Zaw Myint said, standing in a shallow pool of water that glistened with the sheen of oil. However, Zaw Myint's success may soon change. Big Oil is hot on his trail. Companies from the United States, Europe, Japan and Singapore are elbowing their way into the country they turned their backs on during the past two decades because of its appalling human rights abuses. The country fell into China's less scrupulous embrace and, for two decades, Myanmar was the monogamous partner in a loveless marriage of convenience. Western nations are moving into the resource-rich country after decades of disinterest, challenging China's interests... In 2011, fearing the country was sliding towards Chinese client statehood, Myanmar began a process of liberalising the economy, releasing political prisoners, and rebalancing foreign relations. As Myanmar took its first baby-steps towards democracy, Western nations eased economic sanctions. Last year, Myanmar's President Thein Sein met with US President Barack Obama at the White House, the first such visit by a Myanmar head of state in almost 50 years. China is no longer Myanmar's only suitor; she's being courted, she's seeing other people. It's complicated... Burmah Oil: Myanmar is one of the world's oldest oil producers, exporting its first barrel in 1853. Its discovery by British colonisers prompted the creation of the Burmah Oil Company, an early shareholder of the company that would later become oil giant BP. ..."

Title: Gas pains for China and Myanmar
Date of publication: 14 October 2014
Description/subject: "Since the Sino-Myanmar natural gas pipeline commenced fuel deliveries in late July 2013, the 793-kilometer energy transportation route has operated well below its total capacity. The underutilization has resulted in an estimated annualized loss of 1.7 billion yuan (US$280 million) and raised pressing questions about the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC)-led joint venture's future commercial viability. Data about the US$1 billion pipeline's first year of operations have become public in recent months. According to a CNPC report released in July, the pipeline transferred a total of 1.87 billion cubic meters of natural gas to southern China and 60 million cubic meters for local consumption in Myanmar during its first year of deliveries. The 2.47 billion transferred translates to around 20% of the pipeline's total capacity, which is designed to carry 12 billion cubic meters annually..."

Title: Constitutional Reform in Myanmar: Priorities and Prospects for Amendment
Date of publication: January 2014
Description/subject: \"...The Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, Myanmar’s third and current constitution (“the Constitution”), was adopted following a referendum on 10 May 2008, held just eight days after Cyclone Nargis, the most devastating natural disaster in Myanmar’s history. There was little or no public participation in the production of the text of the Constitution; indeed the proposed text was published just one month before the referendum and was unavailable to a large part of the electorate.... 2. However, Myanmar has recently taken a significant step towards participatory democracy by inviting public views on the amendment of the Constitution. In July 2013 the Joint Committee for Reviewing the Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (“the Committee”) was established with the aims of: guaranteeing the perpetuation, peace, stability and development of the Republic; bringing eternal peace to all national races and ethnic people by bringing unity between them; and carrying on democratic reforms for building the state. One of the Committee’s first actions was, on October 3 2013, to announce a nationwide consultation exercise aimed at garnering advice from a broad range of political parties, organizations and individuals as to how the Constitution might be amended. This exercise ran until December 31 2013. The Committee has stated that it received 28,247 letters in response.... 3. During the consultation period, the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law (“the Bingham Centre”) took part in a project to encourage participation by the citizens of Myanmar in that consultation exercise. The Bingham Centre assisted in many well-attended workshops across different parts of Myanmar between October and December 2013. As a result of these workshops, over 500 people submitted responses to the Committee. A summary of the Bingham Centre’s experience of people’s priorities for reform is set out below.... 4. However, the immediate priority for reform identified by the overwhelming majority of delegates at the numerous workshops was to amend the onerous procedure for amending the Constitution, without which reform is likely to be extremely difficult. This paper seeks to put those popular concerns into context by comparing to other constitutions around the world the three elements of this procedure, which, in our view, combine to make it so onerous. Those three elements are:...\"
