Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

In this study it is aimed at answering the question on how the peace process in Myanmar can be understood in an international perspective by looking at the involvement of third parties and what seems to be the sticking point in the conflict: diverging perceptions of the state. By looking at reports, news articles and academic journal it concludes that external third parties have a rather limited role in the peace process, compared to experiences in other intra-state conflicts. Through a presentation of the criticism towards international interference in domestic affairs and an analysis of the contested perception of the state, perspectives are given on the reluctance of Myanmar actors towards international actors, as well as the complex nature of the peace process in Myanmar.
