Résumé du poste


Myanmar was ruled by a military junta for decades. The first general election in 20 years was held in 2010. This was hailed by the junta
as an important step in the transition from military rule to a civilian democracy. A civilian government led by President Thein Sein but
more importantly by the Prime Minister and Nobel Price Aung San Suu Kyi was installed in March 2011. Despite this inauspicious start to
Myanmar’s new post-junta phase, a series of reforms in the months since the new government took up office has led to hopes that
decades of international isolation could be coming to an end. Myanmar still remains one of the poorest country in the world, ranking 152
(1,272 USD per capita in 2017) in the GDP per capita worldwide and 145 in UNDP human development index (2016). Although there is a
lack of reliable health data, it is commonly agreed that Myanmar has some of the worst health indicators in South-East Asia. The ethnic
areas, that have been off-access for decades, are amongst the most vulnerable regions in Myanmar with a very low literacy rate resulting
in various challenges such as education, health services, livelihood, and food insecurity. The largest ethnic group is the Bamar people.
Bamar dominance over Karen, Shan, Rakhine, Mon, Rohyinga, Chin, Kachin and other minorities has been the source of considerable
ethnic tensions and has fueled intermittent protests and separatist rebellions. Military offensives against insurgents have uprooted many
thousands of civilians in the last decades. Ceasefire deals signed in late 2011 and early 2012 with rebels of the Karen and Shan ethnic
groups suggested a new determination to end the long-running conflicts, as did Chinese-brokered talks with Kachin rebels in February
In 2015, a National Cease-fire Agreement (NCA) was signed with most of the ethnic organizations at the border of the country, leading to
real opportunities to access Non State Actors (NSA) areas. The negotiations to broaden this NCA are still ongoing and represent a major
challenge for the country and the stability of some border states. Indeed, since 2011, armed conflict between the Myanmar Armed Forces
(Tatmadaw) and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) has provoked the displacement of around 90,000 civilians to 136 camps across
Kachin State.
The year 2017 has been marked by a radical deterioration of the northern Rakhine situation. A large number of people from all
communities have been affected by the violence, burning of villages and massive displacement that resulted from the 25 August 2017
attacks and subsequent security operations in the northern part of the State. As of February 2018, a total of 688,000 people have been
reported to have arrived in Bangladesh since the 25 August attacks.
