Current Myanmar studies: Aung San Suu Kyi, Muslims in Arakan, and economic insecurity


Current Myanmar studies: Aung San Suu Kyi, Muslims in Arakan, and economic insecurity. Edited by: Winterberger, Georg; Tenberg, Esther (2019). Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

Abstract

Myanmar shifted into the centre of international attention in 2011, when the new civilian government took over. Enormous media scrutiny began in 2017 and 2018 after the outbreak of violence between Muslim and Buddhist population groups. This book brings together papers presented at the Myanmar Conference 2017, the annual gathering of German-speaking Myanmar scholars. It contains articles concerned with the major issues currently facing development in Myanmar. Topics explored here include Muslims in Arakan (widely known as Rohingya) and how they became foreigners in Myanmar; the economic perspective of everyday life on one side and governmental planning on the other side; Aung San Suu Kyi, the de facto leader of the country, and the various challenges she faces as a female politician; and an ethnographic note on how textile production can look in the hinterland of Shan State.
