Myanmarâ€™s Ethnic Insurgents: UWSA, KNU and KIO
Since the elections of 2010, Myanmarâ€™s political landscape has changed significantly; the old military junta has officially been dissolved and a new civilian government, led by President Thein Sein, has been inaugurated. Together with the new constitution of 2008 and the governmentâ€™s demand that all ethnic armies must integrate into the Border Guard Force (BGF), this situation raises a very important question; what will happen to the ongoing ethnic struggles in Myanmar? While the future is never certain, this paper will seek to predict the short-term future by focusing on Myanmarâ€™s three main ethnic resistance groups: the Untied Wa State Army, the Kachin Independence Organization and the Karen National Union. Based on these predictions, the paper will then provide a set of policy recommendations to the central government, the ethnic groups and the international community. [ISDP Policy Brief].
