These past days of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to Burma and meeting the isolated country’s leaders have been very interesting. As it may indeed signal a potential opening-up and reform phase for Burma. The conference report below is from a conference that I organized at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs. It contains contributions from some of the world’s leading scholars on Burma. The issues they grapple with are very much of concern to us at this very moment. Do not hestitate, just download it!
