Governance in Myanmar Discussion Paper Series
The Asia Foundation’s research on governance provides Myanmar’s policymakers, civil society organizations, the business community, and international development partners with data and analysis on subnational governance issues that directly inform policy and reform processes. Subnational governance issues under consideration range from decentralization and the evolving structures of local government to gender dynamics, economic governance, public sector reform, and public financial management.
Peace and Conflict in Myanmar Discussion Paper Series
The Asia Foundation’s research on conflict dynamics in Myanmar strengthens awareness of issues critical to the country’s challenging peace process. The research focuses on governance dynamics in contested areas, including social service provision and local public administration by ethnic armed groups, local justice systems, and the role and presence of militias. Research findings provide evidence and analysis to key stakeholders in Myanmar’s peace process — from government to ethnic armed group negotiating teams as well as civil society and the general public.
