Title: Environment and Law in Burma
Date of publication: August 2001
Description/subject: "Environmental law in Burma under the current military regime is very weak. One of the main problems is that there are no up-to-date laws that regulate pollution. There are also no regulations for environmental impact assessments to examine the harmful effects of projects. Reasonably effective environmental laws were enacted under the British. The democratic period in Burma, from 1948 to 1962, did not improve these laws. After 1962, the military junta repealed and replaced the British laws. The current legislation is too general and has never significantly provided for the protection of the environment. Unfortunately, the Burmese junta shows little concern for the environment..."

Title: Burmese Migrant Workers in Thailand: Policy and Protection
Date of publication: December 2001
Description/subject: "It is estimated that the overall number of Burmese migrants in Thailand is somewhere in between 800,000 and one million. Cross-border migration into Thailand has steadily increased in recent years. Since the 1960s, hundreds of thousands of Thais have gone to work abroad. Refugees from Burma, Laos and Cambodia have since filled this labour shortage in Thailand. However, many of them are undocumented, illegal workers and thus constitute the most vulnerable section of the work force. As illegal non-citizens, they are least protected by a national legal system. The Thai Cabinet recently announced a new policy on migrant workers..."

Title: Burma and National Reconciliation: Ethnic Conflict and State-Society Dysfunction
Date of publication: December 2001
Description/subject: "It is maintained that Burma’s ‘ethnic conflict’ is not per se ethnic, nor that of the kind faced by indigenous peoples of, for example, North America, but a conflict rooted in politics. Following the collapse of Burma’s General Ne Win’s military-socialist regime in 1988, the issue of ethnic conflict has attracted the attention from both observers and protagonists. This attention became heightened following the unraveling of the socialist bloc and the emergence of ethnic wars in those hitherto (presumed) stable socialist nation-states..."

Title: Secession and Self-Determination in the Context of Burma’s Transition
Date of publication: December 2001
Description/subject: "The word ‘secession’ has originated from the concept of ‘self-determination’. Apart from its historical context, ‘self-determination’ can also be seen in its plain meaning. The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘self-determination’ as, “The right of a nation or people to decide what form of government it will have or whether it will be independent of another country or not”. The second part of this definition is easy to understand. A nation or people has the right to be independent of another country when under subjugation of that country. But sometimes it is difficult to determine whether a nation striving for selfdetermination is actually a nation. In this regard, the classic case is that of India..."

Title: Law and Money Laundering in Burma
Date of publication: December 2001
Description/subject: "Money laundering is the most significant economic phenomenon of organized crime. Containing the influence of organized crime requires the elimination of its livelihood, which in Burma is mainly the illicit drug trade. Under the rule of the military junta, Burma has become the world’s biggest producer of heroin and methamphetamines. Burma’s drug lords are now major investors in the country’s economy and have considerable cash reserves at their disposal. In many countries nowadays, tighter banking controls make it difficult for criminals to launder money for use in the legitimate economy. However, banking control in Burma is not very tight, legislation is ineffective, and the military junta is clearly benefiting from the drug trade. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has added Burma to its blacklist of countries deemed uncooperative in fighting money laundering.1 As a result of this, the Burmese junta is currently in the process of drafting an “Illicit Proceeds and Property Control Law”..."

Date of publication: December 2001
Description/subject: "People from Burma have become the major group of displaced persons in Thailand. Most of them are currently being sheltered along the Thai-Burma border, particularly in the Thai provinces of Mae Hong Son, Tak, Kanchanaburi and Ranong. It is estimated that there are some 40,000 children from Burma under the age of 15 accompanying their parents. In addition, thousands of unaccompanied children are driven across the border by the desperate circumstances in Burma..."

Title: Burma’s Democratic Transition: About Justice, Legitimacy, and Past Political Violence
Date of publication: December 2001
Description/subject: "Burma is a nation in crisis. It faces severe economic stagnation, endemic poverty, and serious health and social welfare challenges, all within a context of significant international isolation. Burma’s status as an international pariah represents a global response to a history of gross violations of human rights as well as the refusal of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), the ruling military regime, to recognize the National League of Democracy (NLD) party’s overwhelming victory in the 1990 elections. It is difficult to imagine how Burma can respond to its current crisis without addressing its global political isolation, a process that will almost certainly require a political transition from authoritarian rule to a constitutionally-based electoral democracy. In this sense, the question facing Burma is not so much whether there needs to be a democratic transition, but rather how this transition will be managed and when it will take place..."

Title: Federalism in Burma: A Special Issue
Date of publication: April 2002
Description/subject: "This is a special issue of Legal Issues on Burma Journal about federalism, while federalism itself is a special issue for Burma. This publication is intended to be a contribution to a broad-ranging discussion on governance options for the country. During the last century, Burma has undergone several regime changes: from British colonial rule and Japanese fascist rule to constitutional rule and military rule. However, unfortunately, misrule has eventually been the common fate of the people of Burma. The search for good governance continues but has yielded no results. A new consciousness over the years has grown in the feasibility of federal options..."

Title: Federalism as a Solution to the Ethnic Problem in Burma
Date of publication: April 2002
Description/subject: "From January 4, 1948, the day the Union of Burma came into existence as an independent nation, the people and their leaders have been divided over how to achieve national unity and structure their state. Until 1988, it was federal in name and theory, but unitary in practice. After five decades of political discussion, peaceful movements for secession or autonomy and warfare, the majority Burmans and most of the ethnic minorities remain disunited. From time to time efforts have been made by the Government of Burma and the minorities, either alone or in groups, to end revolt and disunity, but none have succeeded..."

Title: Burma’s Ethnic Problem is Constitutional
Date of publication: April 2002
Description/subject: "Dr David Steinberg of Georgetown University presented a paper, “Myanmar’s Minority Conundrum: Issues of Ethnicity and Authority”, at the Conference entitled “At the Front Lines of Conflict Prevention in Asia”, held in Tokyo on 6 and 7 July 2001. He said that, “The issue of the status and authority of one-third of the population of Myanmar’s population, composed of diverse indigenous non-Burman peoples, remains the most intractable of the problems facing the Burmese state since independence in 1948. The sharing of political power in some manner acceptable to the local populations, and social and economic equity among these diverse peoples are all related to, but even more fundamental and difficult of solution than, the issue of the political form of government that has bedevilled the state for decades. Myanmar has been on the brink of fragmentation because of the diffuse, often antithetical, perceptions of these issues by one or more ethnic groups since independence (…)”..."

Title: Coups, Dialogue and Transition
Date of publication: April 2002
Description/subject: "The Burmese military junta, in the course of its rule for the last forty years, has adopted a range of strategies for its survival. Overthrowing the constitution, bringing in a fake constitution, martial law rule, then an attempt to install constitutional rule by holding elections, then initiating talks with the winning party… the list seems endless. These are just a few of the strategies adopted. These were the political exercises. Internally the junta carried out purges and reorganization of its different commands, at different levels, at different times. However, all these actions had one thing in common, namely the total denial of Rule of Law. The wellpublicized, attempted coup by the Ne Win family has been dramatized for the first time..."

Title: They Gave Them Long Swords
Date of publication: 19 July 2018
Description/subject: "Preparations for Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity Against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State, Myanmar...This report documents and reveals a sinister subplot: Myanmar authorities made extensive and systematic preparations for the commission of mass atrocity crimes against indigenous Rohingya civilians during the weeks and months before Rohingya-militant attacks on August 25, 2017. While the Myanmar authorities have subjected Rohingya to widespread and systematic human rights violations for decades, the Myanmar Army’s preparations for the most recent attacks on civilians in northern Rakhine State occurred between October 2016 and August 2017. On October 9, 2016, Rohingya men and boys armed mostly with sticks and knives attacked three police outposts, reportedly killing nine police and sparking a Myanmar Armyled attack on Rohingya civilians in approximately 40 villages in Maungdaw Township, displacing more than 94,000 civilians. Following that wave of brutal violence, the international community failed to act, and Myanmar officialdom evidently took note: The military, administrative, and civilian authorities subsequently made a series of decisions and enacted several measures that contributed to the commission of the crime of genocide and crimes against humanity beginning August 25, 2017..."

Title: Myanmar: International Accountability Needed for Military-Planned Genocide Against Rohingya
Date of publication: 19 July 2018
Description/subject: Report finds “reasonable grounds” for ICC arrest warrants, identifies 22 military and police officials...The Myanmar authorities made “extensive and systematic preparations” for attacks against Rohingya civilians during the weeks and months before militants attacked police on August 25, 2017, Fortify Rights said in a new report released today. The report finds “reasonable grounds” that crimes against Rohingya constitute genocide and crimes against humanity, and it identifies 22 Myanmar Army and Police officials who should be criminally investigated for their roles in atrocities. In order for the International Criminal Court (ICC) to issue an arrest warrant, the prosecutor must find “reasonable grounds” that perpetrators committed genocide and/or crimes against humanity. The report calls on the United Nations Security Council to urgently refer the situation in Myanmar to the ICC. “Genocide doesn’t happen spontaneously,” said Matthew Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Fortify Rights. “Impunity for these crimes will pave the path for more violations and attacks in the future. The world can’t sit idly by and watch another genocide unfold, but right now, that’s exactly what’s happening.” The dominant narrative about what occurred in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State in 2017 suggests that Rohingya militants attacked dozens of police outposts, instigating a spontaneous Myanmar Army-led crackdown against Rohingya civilians, forcing the displacement of hundreds of thousands to Bangladesh. The 160-page report, “They Gave Them Long Swords”: Preparations for Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity Against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State, Myanmar, documents how the Myanmar authorities committed mass killings, rape, and arson attacks against Rohingya in Maungdaw Township in October and November 2016. When the international community failed to effectively respond to these attacks, Myanmar authorities made preparations to commit another attack that extended throughout all three townships of northern Rakhine State—Maungdaw, Buthidaung, and Rathedaung.

Title: Greater future global warming inferred from Earth’s recent energy budget
Date of publication: 29 November 2017
Description/subject: "We have a paper out in Nature titled “Greater future global warming inferred from Earth’s recent energy budget”. The Carnegie press release can be found here and Coverage from the Washington Post can be found here. A video abstract summarizing the study is below...The study addresses one of the key questions in climate science: How much global warming should we expect for a given increase in the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases?...[I] we were to assume that humans will continue to increases greenhouse gas emissions substantially throughout the 21st century (the RCP8.5 future emissions scenario), climate models tell us that we can expect anywhere from about 3.2°C to 5.9°C (5.8°F to 10.6°F) of global warming above pre-industrial levels by 2100. This means that for identical changes in greenhouse gas concentrations (more technically, identical changes in radiative forcing), climate models simulate a range of global warming that differs by almost a factor of 2...Using the steepest future emissions scenario as an example (the RCP8.5 emissions scenario), the figure below shows the comparison of the raw-model projections used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, to our projections that incorporate information from observations..."

Title: Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter & Monthly Report, June 2018 (English, Karen, Burmese)
Date of publication: June 2018
Description/subject: ".... Map of Karen Refugee Camps...Newsletter and Activities report...Monthly Activities Report ...NGO Supporters...Camp Population Report: Registered people in the 7 camps (Mae La; Umphiem; Nu Po; Mae La Oon; Mae Ra Moe; Htam Hin; Don Yang); Unregistered people in the 7 camps; New Arrivals in the 7 camps; Pre-Screening People in the 7 camps; Number of PAB People in the 7 camps; Boarding House Students in the 7 camps; Feeding Figures in the 7 camps; General Population in the 7 camps....As we retrospect the political development, especially after 2012 bilateral ceasefire, the political framework for refugee return and present political situation in Burma shows that, return with dignity, safety and voluntary, is not yet conducive for refugees. No doubt that, some people can go back now, depending on their decision and yet there is no clear provision for them, in term of travelling, documentation, and other related physical protection. However, still many refugees think, the time to go back now, cannot be happening as doubt over political transition process, ceasefire and human right issues remain great concern for them. For us, the refugee committee, camp committee, managing camps in this transition period is quite challenging and we know the situation of the camps and the residents very well that, there are still a lot of to be carried day to day, and need a lot of time to prepare for any untoward consequences. The refugee committee also realizes that, they have great burden for the refugees’ future and yet they have no power to make decision for their future. Looking at the present situation in term of assistance, this is also an adding factor to our daily work to maintain the camp’s population. Since last year, the support to refugee camps has been cut to 40% and this year 2018, 60% has been cut and from August, there will be no administration cost for the camps. And there is no possibility that, they will be funding for coming 2019. In coming year, there will also be election for new committee. Another issue to be considered for those who will be taking up this great task during this period. There is no doubt, the administrative structure, staffs, and camp management, will be to be changed, or to adapt to the changing needs of the refugees. For the Refugee committee, our great concern is whether there will be people who will commit to serve the refugee community. With all these factors such as service reduction, staff-turn over, and social problems in the camps, this will be out of our hand to handle this alone, or leave it to the authorities of Thailand government in dealing with all the cases happening in the camps. Best wishes, General Secretary Karen Refugee Committee"

Title: The Long Haul Ahead for Myanmar’s Rohingya Refugee Crisis
Date of publication: 16 May 2018
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "In the last eight months, nearly 700,000 Rohingya have fled indiscriminate and brutal operations by Myanmar’s military in northern Rakhine State to Bangladesh, joining tens of thousands who left earlier in 2017, and many more from previous years. The two countries have agreed upon a procedural framework for voluntary repatriation, but no Rohingya have returned and small numbers continue to flee. The burden of the crisis may have shifted to Bangladesh, but the onus of responsibility remains squarely on Myanmar. The world must pursue accountability for crimes committed and press the government to create the conditions for voluntary repatriation. The tragic reality, however, is that the vast majority of refugees are unlikely to return in the foreseeable future, however much international opprobrium Myanmar faces. Planning for the refugees should proceed on that assumption, while efforts continue to protect those Rohingya who remain in Myanmar. Failing to develop long-term plans for the refugees would not only risk that hundreds of thousands of people remain in limbo. It could also lead the status quo to morph in dangerous ways. For now, host communities and political elites in Bangladesh largely sympathise with the refugees, but if the sentiments of either were to shift – after the December elections, for example, or due to prolonged negative impacts on host communities – the Rohingya might face pressure to return against their will or move into more isolated camps in Bangladesh, such as those the Bangladeshi government is building on remote Bhasan island. Such developments could prompt instability or violence on either side of the border – due to organised resistance by refugees to relocation or premature repatriation, communal violence against returning refugees, or renewed ARSA mobilisation in Rakhine State. The social, political and strategic implications of this crisis for Bangladesh are complex at all levels. The host communities – neglected by Dhaka at the best of times – are already feeling the strain. While there is no disagreement in political and policy circles about the intractability of the crisis, there is widespread reluctance to acknowledge it, as it would reflect badly on the Bangladeshi government’s ability to protect its sovereignty and could be interpreted as tacit acceptance of ethnic cleansing. Public sympathy for the Rohingya will not last forever, and the current situation is likely to evolve in unpredictable ways. After the December elections, the next government (likely to be the same as the present one) will have to make some difficult longer-term decisions. This subject will be covered in detail in a forthcoming report. Myanmar has constructed some of the infrastructure that could support a limited return, in the form of heavily guarded processing and holding camps. But it has done little if anything to create conditions on the ground that would give refugees, who fled abuses that likely constitute crimes against humanity, and who continue to be fearful and traumatised, the confidence to go back. It has bulldozed many burned Rohingya villages, is building new roads, power lines and security infrastructure across northern Rakhine State, and has promoted or allowed the expansion of existing villages and construction of new settlements inhabited by other ethnicities. The refugees’ return to their homes and lands thus is not only increasingly unlikely, but also becoming impossible in practice. Ethnic Rakhine political leaders and local The Long Haul Ahead for Myanmar’s Rohingya Refugee Crisis Crisis Group Asia Report N°296, 16 May 2018 Page ii communities are staunchly opposed to repatriation, and the government has done little to mitigate their resistance (indeed, its own relations with ethnic Rakhine have soured). Moreover, hostility toward the Rohingya across Myanmar political elites and in society more broadly remains firmly entrenched. Most refugees express no intention to go to third countries, and in any case their opportunities to do so are likely to remain scarce. They want to return home. Many refugees hope that the unprecedented international attention their plight has received over the past months could help them achieve that, but they are resigned to staying for an extended period in Bangladesh. The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army militant group has significant networks of members and supporters in the Bangladesh camps, and appears determined to remain relevant as an insurgent and political force. The extent to which it can do so is uncertain. It launched a small cross-border attack on a Myanmar army convoy on 5 January, but it has conducted no actions since then. Whether it can leverage widespread disaffection and the significant sympathy it still enjoys in the camps into political authority and sustain cross-border attacks remains to be seen. There is no evidence it has established links to transnational groups like ISIS or al-Qaeda. Indeed, viewing the situation in the camps through a counter-terrorism lens would be unhelpful, as the Bangladeshi authorities appear to recognise. Improving the situation in northern Rakhine State, where 100,000-150,000 Rohingya still live (and on some estimates as many as 250,000), is not primarily a development challenge. It depends on the Myanmar government and security forces changing course. For the Rohingya in northern Rakhine, particularly those in rural areas, life is becoming increasingly untenable. Curfews, checkpoints and movement restrictions mean that they cannot gain access to farms, fishing grounds, markets, day labour opportunities or social services. These people say they do not want to leave, but if the restrictions are not urgently eased, many may decide they have no other choice. To prevent further deterioration, the international community should continue pushing the government to allow unfettered United Nations and aid agency access to northern Rakhine. They should press for accountability for crimes committed by the security forces and others. It is also vital to ensure that the government changes conditions in northern Rakhine, to improve the prospects of an eventual refugee return, and more urgently to stabilise the situation of the Rohingya who remain, so as to prevent a further exodus. The recent appointment of a UN special envoy for Myanmar, combined with continued scrutiny and engagement from the Security Council – which just completed a visit to Bangladesh and Myanmar – can hopefully result in some progress on these issues. The recent statement from State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi’s office promising improved relations with the UN, together with the appointment of a new president, may open space for changes in the government’s approach. Realistically, however, the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who have fled to Bangladesh appear unlikely to return any time soon. Donors should prepare for the long haul. They should not only fund the humanitarian operation but also invest in the development of Cox’s Bazar district, where the refugees currently reside, to reduce the burden on host communities, minimise risks that local sentiment turns against refugees and create an environment more amenable to their integration. The The Long Haul Ahead for Myanmar’s Rohingya Refugee Crisis Crisis Group Asia Report N°296, 16 May 2018 Page iii Bangladeshi government currently resists such an approach, given the domestic political costs of acknowledging that the Rohingya will remain indefinitely. Similarly, many Western governments are understandably loath to acknowledge explicitly that prospects of the refugees’ return are slim. But sustained political discussions on longterm solutions between the government, donors and multilateral institutions are vital. Failing to develop plans for the Rohingya’s prolonged stay in Bangladesh risks worsening their suffering and propelling the crisis in a still more dangerous direction".
