Burma bistånt

By Jesper Bengtsson, Februay 21, 2015 SRA-Sweden Det svenska stödet till en burmesisk människorättskommission som kontrolleras helt av militären visar att omvärlden borde inta en mer försiktig hållning i relationerna till Burma.

WP_20150210_15_05_45_Pro

By Pia Daleke, February 12, 2015 Det var en ganska dyster bild av händelseutvecklingen i Burma som framträdde när experter på landet träffades på Utrikespolitiska institutet (UI) nyligen.

zarni 6

By Maung Zarni January 18, 2015 Myanmar’s slow Rohingya genocide is a brilliant strategy that kills several birds with a single stone – as far as the country’s ruling military Bama regimes. Myanmar’s great commercial opening, talked up as “reforms”, triggered Rakhine nationalists and democrats’ loud demands and agitations for 3 things – up until […]
