Myanmar Program

Established in 2009, the Myanmar Program worked to deepen the understanding of the development and democratic governance challenges facing Myanmar. Moving beyond technical economics, the program examined the broader political economy of reform and explored the connections between politics and institutional development to better address the country’s social and economic problems. The goal of this analysis was to provide a common framework in which the different interest groups could negotiate solutions to long-standing problems, particularly with regard to minority ethnic and religious groups.
