Ethnic politics in Burma – States of conflict

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Burma politics has long been dominated by two inter-linked conflicts : the struggle for a democratically accountable government, and the struggles for self-determination of non-Burman communities. The Ethnic question is at least as much important as the lack of democracy in. The government remains the main obstacle to change. It may be comforting to believe that sustainable democratic transition can occur overnight, and that all that is required is replacement of the evil generals in Yangon with the angelic pro-democracy opposition. Any transition from military rule will have to occur gradually, and be accompanied by changes in political culture and the behavior of elites. In the case of Burma, this struggle is at local, national and global levels. The need of change in Burma has never been greater. - (GL)
