    displacement of hundreds of thousands of people in
    recent years. It also undermines Burma’s fragile peace
    •The 2008 constitution and subsequent laws are used

    This report contains very firm criticism of the SPDC for the crackdown on the NLD and in particular the 30 May attack on an NLD convoy when a number of NLD supporters were killed and others, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, were detained. He considers that these actions have set back the dialogue process, perhaps terminally.

    Early in the morning of 25 August 2017, members of a Rohingya armed group, the Arakan Rohingya
    Salvation Army (ARSA), attacked approximately 30 security force outposts in northern Rakhine State.1 In its
    response, the Myanmar Army, rather than targeting ARSA, launched an attack on the Rohingya population
    in northern Rakhine State as a whole. Often working with Border Guard Police (BGP) and local vigilantes, the
    military has carried out a campaign of violence that has been systematic, organized, and ruthless.

    "In September 2002 the Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC), formerly the
    Burmese Border Consortium, compiled a report “Internally Displaced People and
    Relocation Sites in Eastern Burma”. The report was written because although the
    Royal Thai Government was reluctant to accept more refugees and believed repatriation

    Construction of various project components
    to extract, process, and export the Shwe
    gas - as well as oil trans-shipments from
    Africa and the Middle East - is now well
    underway. Local peoples are losing their land
    and fishing grounds without finding new job
    opportunities. Workers that have found lowpaying
    temporary jobs are exploited and fired for
    demanding basic rights. Women face unequal
    wages, discrimination in the compensation
    process, and vulnerabilities in the growing sex
    industry around the project.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (extract): Poverty alleviation has been recognised by the new government as a strategic priority for human
    development. While official figures estimate that a quarter of the nation live in poverty, this survey suggests
    that almost two thirds of households in rural areas of South East Burma/Myanmar are unable to meet
    their basic needs. Impoverishment is particularly severe in the conflict-affected townships of Kyaukgyi
    and Shwegyin in Pegu/Bago Region and Thandaung in Karen/Kayin State. Comparative analysis with
