Burma Redux

Columbia University Press

This chapter considers the extent to which foreigners are implicated in injustice in Myanmar, and thereby carry corresponding obligations to engage with it. The aim is to build a secure theoretical foundation for policy options in the world of practice. The chapter opens with a brief survey of debate about global justice. It then examines the issue of external responsibility for injustice inside Myanmar. Following on, it considers duties of global justice with no readily identifiable historical imprint. It closes by aggregating the demands of justice in this case. The argument is that outsiders clearly do owe duties of justice to the people of Myanmar. Without taking a further analytical step, however, ways in which they might be performed can be described only very provisionally.
