The Contested Areas of Myanmar: Subnational Conflict, Aid, and Development

While the current peace processes in Myanmar are a national endeavor, the broader international community has an important supporting role to play. 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, The Contested Areas of Myanmar: Subnational Conflict, Aid, and Development. The multi-authored report draws on the rich expertise of contributing researchers and analysts. It builds upon the Foundation’s 2013 publication, The Contested Corners of Asia: Subnational Conflict and International Development Assistance. The extensive analytical work produced by the Foundation since 2013 on governance issues impacting Myanmar as a whole, including conflict-affected areas where parallel authorities and mixed control arrangements have endured, provided a valuable country-specific information base.
