(p.183) Conclusion
Burma Redux

Ian Holliday

Columbia University Press

This concluding chapter pulls together the threads unraveled in preceding chapters. It acknowledges that Myanmar's political situation remains dire and necessitates substantial reform. National reconciliation embracing all strands of political opinion and all ethnic groups is also essential. For foreigners, the critical question is how to deliver on the demands of global justice by making an effective contribution to change sought and driven by local people. The chapter thus focuses on how insiders might unmake Myanmar and remake Burma, and how outsiders might support their endeavors. Looking on this basis at strategic issues generated by external engagement with Myanmar and a future Burma's reintegration into international society, it argues for an agenda that can be supported by neighboring states and at the same time chime with global opinion. How that might happen is spelt out in some detail, with both state and non-state actors brought within the analytical frame.
