The Contested Areas of Myanmar: Subnational Conflict, Aid, and Development
Far from being a problem restricted to the periphery, Myanmar’s subnational conflicts are widespread and shape many of the country’s most pressing national challenges. Subnational conflicts directly affect up to one-quarter of the population. For more than half a century they have severely impacted the entire country’s political trajectory, economic growth, and human development. To contribute to the ongoing dialogue on how to encourage Myanmar’s political transition, the country’s development, and ultimately prospects for peace, The Asia Foundation carried out a year-long study leading to this report, which draws on the rich expertise of contributing researchers and analysts and builds upon the Foundation’s 2013 publication, The Contested Corners of Asia: Subnational Conflict and International Development Assistance.
