Despite deteriorating economic and developmental conditions, worsening environmental problems, and troubles arising from the unresolved status of its ethnic minorities, Myanmar seems no closer to a political resolution. Myanmar�s economy continues to stagnate, with severe implications for its people. Low levels of international assistance have exacerbated the situation. Myanmarâ�"the State, Community and the Environment examines the missed opportunities by government and opposition groups to find a way out of the political impasse and improve the standard of living of the people of Myanmar. This collection provides insights into the country�s economic development, in particular the vital rice-marketing sector and the attempts to expand existing industrial zones. It focuses, for the first time, on Myanmar�s environmental governance with in-depth case studies, and on the increasing need for effective environmental protection and sustainability.

Title: Burma-Myanma(r) Research and Its Future: Implications for Scholars and Policymakers (Review of the Gothenburg conference)
Date of publication: 15 March 2003
Description/subject: "...The 2002 meeting should serve as a model for future Burma Studies events in at least four ways. Firstly, rather than being centred at a single location, different venues should be sought for the biannual Burma Studies Group meetings, chosen on the basis of their overall attractiveness and accessibility to the widest range of participants. Secondly, people with diverse Burma-related interests and experiences should be proactively included, not only academics. Thirdly, the four-day format should be maintained, so that participants can get to know each other and their viewpoints. Finally, political neutrality should be preserved and financial support thus accepted from reputable sources only. Gothenburg was an excellent venue, a city with a pleasant physical environment and a truly civil society."
