    Myanmar–China Relations: Interlocking Interests but Independent Output.N. Ganesan - 2011 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 12 (1):95-111.
    The bilateral relationship between China and Myanmar is important and intricate despite being asymmetrical in China's favour. Whereas most observers regard the relationship as being heavily weighted in China's favour, Myanmar does have a fair amount of latitude within the relationship that is informed by historical, economic, and strategic considerations. The nationalism and xenophobia present in the attitudes of elite from the Myanmar military junta is both recognized and understood by China that is keen to have a (...)

    Appraising Myanmar's Democratic Transition and Evolving Challenges.N. Ganesan - 2017 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 18 (1):196-215.
    Democratic transitions in Asia have received widespread interest in the political science literature since the 1990s. The Thein Sein-led government that came into power in 2010 in Myanmar has undertaken wide ranging reforms that has altered the country's political landscape. They include evolving a working relationship with the political opposition, freeing political prisoners, and the granting of amnesty to political exiles to encourage their return, the negotiation of ceasefire agreements with almost all of the ethnic insurgent armies and the (...)

    Motivations and Perceptions of Community Advisory Boards in the Ethics of Medical Research: The Case of the Thai-Myanmar Border.Michael Parker, Francois Nosten, Nicholas P. J. Day, Nicholas J. White, Phaik Kin Cheah, Phaik Yeong Cheah & Khin Maung Lwin - 2014 - BMC Medical Ethics 15 (1).
    BackgroundCommunity engagement is increasingly promoted as a marker of good, ethical practice in the context of international collaborative research in low-income countries. There is, however, no widely agreed definition of community engagement or of approaches adopted. Justifications given for its use also vary. Community engagement is, for example, variously seen to be of value in: the development of more effective and appropriate consent processes; improved understanding of the aims and forms of research; higher recruitment rates; the identification of important ethical (...)

    Assessing Research Ethics Committees in Myanmar: Results of a Self-Assessment Tool.Zaw Zaw Oo, Min Wun, Yin Thet Nu Oo, Kyaw Swa Mya & Henry J. Silverman - 2020 - Asian Bioethics Review 12 (1):37-49.
    Human subjects research has increased in Myanmar since 2010 and, accordingly, the establishment of research ethics committees has increased review of these research studies. However, characteristics that reflect the operations of RECs in Myanmar have not been assessed. To assess the structures and processes of RECs at medical institutions in Myanmar, we used a self-assessment tool for RECs operating in low- and middle-income countries. This tool consists of the following ten domains: organizational aspects, membership and ethics training, (...)

    Myanmar has recently surfaced from total military rule and efforts at conducting research to enhance the health of the population has increased during the recent democratization process, both from the military and civil sectors as well as support from international agencies. International guidelines mandate that such research requires prior ethics review in accordance with international standards. Previous commentators have expressed concerns, however, regarding the degree of adequate training in research ethics for investigators, the optimal functioning of Research Ethics Committees, (...)

    Foundations of Criticality: Applications of Traditional Monastic Pedagogy in Myanmar.Pyi Phyo Kyaw - 2015 - Contemporary Buddhism 16 (2):401-427.
    It is well documented in scholarship that standardized, non-secularized monastic examinations in Myanmar have resulted in an education system that focuses on rote learning. Through a multidisciplinary study of monastic education in Myanmar and modern educational theories, this article investigates how Burmese monks and nuns study Buddhist texts in formal monastic curricula and what pedagogical and learning approaches are applied in their study of Buddhist texts. I shall give particular attention to the process of acquiring expert knowledge through (...)

    Doing Business with Rights Violating Regimes Corporate Social Responsibility and Myanmar’s Military Junta.Ian Holliday - 2005 - Journal of Business Ethics 61 (4):329 - 342.
    Whether to do business with rights violating regimes is one of many dilemmas faced by socially responsible corporations. In this article the difficult case of Myanmar is considered. Ruled for decades by a closed and sometimes brutal military elite, the country has long been subject to informal and formal sanctions. However, as sanctions have failed to trigger political reform, it is necessary to review the policy options. The focus here is on the contribution socially responsible corporations might make to (...)

    Rurally Rooted Cross-Border Migrant Workers From Myanmar, Covid-19, and Agrarian Movements.Saturnino M. Borras, Jennifer C.

    This paper examines the situation of rurally rooted cross-border migrant workers from Myanmar during the Covid-19 pandemic. It looks at the circumstances of the migrants prior to the global health emergency, before exploring possibilities for a post-pandemic future for this stratum of the working people by raising critical questions addressed to agrarian movements. It does this by focusing on the nature and dynamics of the nexus of land and labour in the context of production and social reproduction, a view (...)

    The paper opens by recounting the beginnings of Buddhism in Dawei as preserved in local chronicles and sustained in stupas marking the episodes of the chronicle narrative. The chronicles start with a visit of the Buddha whose arrival triggers a series of events bringing together pre-existing tutelary figures, weiza, a hermit and offspring born of a golden fish, culminating in the establishment of the first Buddhist kingdom circa the eighth to tenth century CE. The enshrinement of sacred hairs gifted by (...)

    The Sound of the Breath: Sunlun and Theinngu Meditation Traditions of Myanmar.Pyi Phyo Kyaw - 2019 - Contemporary Buddhism 20 (1-2):247-291.
    ABSTRACTThis article explores the popular Sunlun and Theinngu meditation traditions in Myanmar. The founders, Sunlun Sayadaw Ven. U Kavi and Theinngu Sayadaw Ven. U Ukkaṭṭha, both led a lay life until in their mid-40s and only then took up meditation, going on to become highly respected meditation teachers. Their meditation techniques are similarly distinctive in employing rapid, strong and rhythmic breathing. They combined this with the contemplation of the intense, usually unpleasant, bodily sensations that are thus induced. I document (...)

    Thailand's Relations with Malaysia and Myanmar in Post-Cold War Southeast Asia.N. Ganesan - 2001 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 2 (1):127-146.
    This article examines Thai policy towards Malaysia and Myanmar in the post-Cold War period and argues that bilateral relations between Thailand and these countries have deteriorated considerably. The immediate reason for the change is the collapse of structural arrangements associated with the Cold War, in particular the Indochina Security Complex and domestic political developments in Thailand and Myanmar. Whereas a number of issues like illegal migration, fishing and insurgency have contributed to the deteriorated relations, the situation has been (...)

    The (New) Buddhist Nationalisms? Symmetries and Specificities in Sri Lanka and Myanmar.Benjamin Schonthal & Matthew J. Walton - 2016 - Contemporary Buddhism 17 (1):81-115.
    A large proportion of mainstream media coverage of Sri Lanka and Myanmar has grouped Bodu Bala Sēnā, the 969 Movement and the Organization for the Protection of Race and Religion as a single phenomenon. Referred to variously as Buddhist terrorism, Buddhist militarism or Buddhist nationalism, these groups appear in popular media as separate iterations of a shared type. However, beneath the many ostensible symmetries—particularly commonalities at the level of group representation—subtle but significant differences also exist in the groups’ political (...)

    Social Inequalities, Empowerment, and Women’s Transitions Into Abusive Marriages: A Case Study From Myanmar.Aye Thiri Kyaw, San Shwe & Stephanie Spaid Miedema - 2016 - Gender and Society 30 (4):670-694.
    Extant sociological theories of gendered power within marriage focus on how social forces—such as gender inequality—shape women’s power within already established partnerships and subsequently affect their risk of intimate partner violence. Yet, inequitable social forces similarly shape women’s life conditions prior to and during the marital transition, with implications for women’s power in marriage. In Myanmar, gender relations between women and men historically have been touted as equitable and advantageous to women. Rare qualitative data find that structural gender inequalities (...)

  27. Can Regime Change Improve Ethnic Relations? Perception of Ethnic Minorities After the 2021 Coup in Myanmar.Roman David, Aung Kaung Myat & Ian Holliday - forthcoming - Japanese Journal of Political Science:1-16.
    Regime change often exacerbates ethnic conflict. This article examines the curious case of Myanmar, where a 2021 military coup was met, on the surface, with broad-based resistance across a divided society. An important question that therefore arises is whether, below the surface, this unity also took a more positive form of national solidarity. Were deep ethnic cleavages intensified or alleviated by the 2021 coup? This question bears theoretical relevance for the study of ethnic conflict and has social relevance for (...)

    Recital Of The Tham Vessantara–jĀtaka: A Social–Cultural Phenomenon In Kengtung, Eastern Shan State, Myanmar.Sengpan Pannyawamsa - 2009 - Contemporary Buddhism 10 (1):125-139.
    The Vessantara Jātaka is possibly the single most important and widely known Buddhist text in South East Asia. It relates the life story of the bodhisatta in his final life before birth in historical time as Siddhattha Gotama. It exemplifies the cardinal virtue of generosity as it shows the hero prepared to give away everything that is most precious to him, including wife and children, in pursuit of Buddhist virtue. This powerfully emotive story is very popular in the Theravada countries (...)

    Would Armed Humanitarian Intervention Have Been Justified to Protect the Rohingyas?Benjamin D. King - 2020 - Journal of Military Ethics 19 (4):269-284.
    The mass killings, large-scale gang rape and large-scale expulsion of the Rohingyas from Myanmar constitute one of the most repugnant world events in recent years. This article addresses the question of whether armed humanitarian intervention would have been morally permissible to protect the Rohingyas. It approaches the question from the perspective of the jus ad bellum criteria of just war theory. This approach does not yield a definitive answer because knowing whether certain jus ad bellum conditions might have been (...)

    For many years, the actions of Myanmar’s military government have provoked domestic discontent and strong condemnation overseas. The government is encouraging tourism in an attempt to legitimize its actions whilst generating valuable foreign currency. However, a number of organizations are urging people to avoid travel to Myanmar and thus prevent the military junta from obtaining the hard currency and global legitimacy it needs to survive. In this article, the ethical arguments for and against tourism in Myanmar are (...)

    As corporations are going global, they are increasingly confronted with human rights challenges. As such, new ways to deal with human rights challenges in corporate operations must be developed as traditional governance mechanisms are not always able to tackle them. This article presents five different views on innovative solutions for the relationships between business and human rights that all build on empowerment, dialogue and constructive engagement. The different approaches highlight an emerging trend toward a more active role for corporations in (...)

    Challenges Arising When Seeking Broad Consent for Health Research Data Sharing: A Qualitative Study of Perspectives in Thailand.Phaik Yeong Cheah, Nattapat Jatupornpimol, Borimas Hanboonkunupakarn, Napat Khirikoekkong, Podjanee Jittamala, Sasithon Pukrittayakamee, Nicholas P. J. Day, Michael Parker & Susan Bull - 2018 - BMC Medical Ethics 19 (1):86.
    Research funders, regulatory agencies, and journals are increasingly expecting that individual-level data from health research will be shared. Broad consent to such sharing is considered appropriate, feasible and acceptable in low- and middle-income settings, but to date limited empirical research has been conducted to inform the design of such processes. We examined stakeholder perspectives about how best to seek broad consent to sharing data from the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit, which implemented a data sharing policy and broad consent (...)

    Possessed for Success: Prosperity Buddhism and the Cult of the Guardians of the Treasure Trove in Upper Burma.Niklas Foxeus - 2017 - Contemporary Buddhism 18 (1):108-139.
    Following the global spread of capitalism from the early 1990s, individualistic, non-institutionalised prosperity religion and ‘occult economies’ have emerged throughout the world, including South-East Asia, but have seemingly not yet been investigated with respect to Burma/myanmar. This article focuses on the cult of the guardians of the treasure trove – a form of ‘prosperity Buddhism’ – in Upper Burma, wherein predominantly business women of lower middle classes perform possession dances to become successful in business. It has partly evolved from (...)

    Buddhist Approaches to Human Rights: Dissonances and Resonances.Carmen Meinert (ed.) - 2010 - Columbia University Press.
    The demonstrations of monks in Tibet and Myanmar in recent times as well as the age-old conflict between a predominantly Buddhist population and a Hindu minority in Sri Lanka raise the question of how the issues of human rights and Buddhism are related. The question applies both to the violation of basic rights in Buddhist countries and to the defence of those rights which are well-grounded in Buddhist teachings. The volume provides academic essays that reflect this up to now (...)

    Shan Buddhist Art on the Market: What, Where and Why?Catherine Raymond - 2009 - Contemporary Buddhism 10 (1):141-157.
    Shan Buddha images are generally identifiable even in the absense of typologies of Shan iconographic styles. Our contribution herewith to the development of such a typology is based on recognizably Shan Buddha images within the Northern Illinois University Burma Art collection, several of which bear inscriptions indicating date and provenance. That the present borders of Burma/myanmar, Laos, Thailand and China dissect the former Shan kingdoms – in none of which countries the Shan assert cultural sovereignty – suggests an eclectic (...)

Belonging to the lineage of the Mogok abbot, this monk was known as the ‘Frying pan’ abbot and had gained a considerable influence through the combination of systematic preaching and of humanitarian aid and social action.

    Roots of Discrimination Against Rohingya Minorities: Society, Ethnicity and International Relations.Akm Ahsan Ullah & Diotima Chattoraj - 2018 - Intellectual Discourse 26 (2):541-565.
    According to the United Nations, the Rohingya people are the most persecuted minority group in the world. The atrocities perpetrated by Myanmar authorities could by any reckoning be called ethnic cleansing. This paper delves into the level of discrimination against the Rohingya population perpetrated by Myanmar authorities in myriad of ways. A team of researchers interviewed 37 victims. The pattern of persecution goes back to 1948 – the year when the country achieved independence from their British colonizers. Today, (...)

    Routledge Handbook of Theravāda Buddhism.Stephen C. Berkwitz & Ashley Thompson - 2022 - Routledge.
    Among one of the older sub-fields in Buddhist Studies, the study of Theravāda Buddhism is undergoing a revival by contemporary scholars who are revising long-held conventional views of the tradition while undertaking new approaches and engaging new subject matter. The term Theravāda has been refined, and research has expanded beyond the analysis of canonical texts to examine contemporary cultural forms, social movements linked with meditation practices, material culture, and vernacular language texts. The Routledge Handbook of Theravāda Buddhism illustrates the growth (...)

    Social Policy and Special Economic Zones in the Greater Mekong Subregion.John Walsh - 2013 - International Journal of Social Quality 3 (1):44-56.
    One of the principal means by which state management of rapid economic development has been attempted in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) has been the creation and maintenance of special economic zones (SEZs). The purpose of SEZs is to encourage domestic and international investment in specific areas to promote mainly export-oriented manufacturing. They have been created in large numbers in Thailand, Vietnam and the Yunnan Province of China, and they are being built across Cambodia, Laos and now Myanmar. Negative (...)

    Formulating a Moral Core for International Codes of Conduct.Duane Windsor - 2005 - International Corporate Responsibility Series 2:47-63.
    A moral core places ethical considerations superior to business interest. This core must include voluntary prescriptions in various forms to “buy higher, sell lower.” International business ethics must somehow address the tradeoff between corporate financial and stakeholder interests. Corporation codes of conduct generally do not define a moral core. Corporate citizenship is typically strategic investment in markets and reputation. There are two practical paths for formulating a moral core. One path is civil lawsuits against multinationals that, successful or not, increase (...)

    Meditation in Tai Nuea Lay Buddhist Practice.David Wharton - 2019 - Contemporary Buddhism 20 (1-2):292-313.
    ABSTRACTThe Tai Nuea ethnolinguistic group is found on the periphery of Theravāda Buddhist influence in parts of southwestern China, northern Myanmar, and in small communities in northwestern Laos. Their relative isolation from mainstream reform movements indicates that they may have much to contribute to the understanding of pre-modern local, and especially lay, Buddhist practices in mainland Southeast Asia. This article focuses on weekly days of lay practice during the annual rainy season retreat in a Tai Nuea village in Mueang (...)
