Director of Research, Mainland Southeast Asia. Asia Foundation is a non-profit international development organization dedicated to improving life in a dynamic and developing Asia. When Pope Francis arrived in Myanmar, the country is struggling with the Rohingya crisis.


In Myanmar, unanticipated and tragic reform since 2011 has ushered in a shift from half a millennium of junta leadership to a system of dual nationalism. It retains considerable powers, but competitively run general election, a vigorous parliamentary assembly, more vivid press and a burgeoning civic community have enabled debate on a number of topics concerning the state' s character and the state' s developing calendar that have not been possible so far.

Such changes are extremely difficult to cope with and can themselves create a new dynamic that can erode both the beginning process of democracy reform and the effort to find a sustainable resolution to decade-long interethnic clash. While the need to reconstruct the country's policy, economy and society to respond to the needs of its people is crucial, it is called into question by the significant shortfall in capacities in all industries, while basic issues concerning the roles of the army in the policy system persist.
