Burma

Our Take

Burma’s transition to democracy remains fraught with problems.  The Rohingya are denied citizenship and lack many basic rights.  They remain extremely vulnerable to the hostile attitudes many Burmese hold. The Burmese military continues to fight multiple ethnic rebellions, while the huge presence the military holds over the government stalls many democratic efforts for change.  The U.S. government has recently moved towards a friendlier relationship with the Burmese government, and the U.S. should use its influence to pressure the Burmese government to improve its treatment of the Rohingya, allow for democratic reforms, and meaningfully engage in peace negotiations with ethnic rebels.
