Myanmar's 'hidden genocide': will inter-communal tensions derail the current democratization?

While the international community is addressing the economic potential and political liberalization in Myanmar, recent events reveal that many challenges remain. Since mid-2012, Buddhist-Burman nationalists have repeatedly attacked the Muslim minority, particularly along the border to Bangladesh. At the same time, there are signs pointing towards an agreement being concluded with ethnic minority insurgents in northern Myanmar, and intercommunal sentiments are increasingly dominating the political debate.

The latest political controversy relates to the categories used in the upcoming census, which the political opposition claims that have been chosen as a deliberate way of dividing powerful minorities and undermining the demands for federalist reform.

The presentation will discuss the current tension in Myanmar but also provide a background of how and why ethnic politics have been so important in the country.

Joakim Kreutz is a research fellow at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs and part of Uppsala University’s East Asian Peace Program. He received his PhD in 2012 at the Deparment of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University. During 2012-2013, he was a member of an international research team, analyzing if democratization could lead to peace in Myanmar. Furthermore he participated in the first international conference on peacebuilding in Myanmar, which took place in its capital Yangon in October 2012.
