100 days of discipline-flourishing democracy

This week The Myanmar Times published a 2000-word overview of the first 100 days of Burma’s new government. It covers a pretty wide range of issues including President Thein Sein, the parliamentary process, economic policy, decentralisation, bureaucratic reform and ethnic politics. A Burmese language version is available here.

The report includes copious quotation from a range of Burma analysts including Marie LallU Kyaw Lin OoDerek TonkinTrevor Wilson and me. We offer a fair sweep of views on how the new government is going. As a summary of knowledge and current interpretations there is much here for further consideration.
