The Contested Corners of Asia – Executive Summary (Burmese)


(In Burmese)

Subnational conflict is the most widespread, deadly and enduring, form of conflict in Asia. Over the past 20 years, there have been 26 subnational conflicts in South and Southeast Asia, affecting half of the countries in this region. These conflicts are among the world’s longest running armed struggles, often lasting for multiple generations, and more than 40 years on average. Within Asia, subnational conflicts have been the most common form of armed conflict since 1955. The interactions between conflict, politics, and aid in subnational conflict areas are a critical blind spot for aid programs.
