A broader lens on Myanmar’s problems

Associate Professor Simon Law from NUS Faculty of Law and Chairman of the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA), and Ms Andrea Lee from SIIA opined that there are many reasons to recognise that the Rakhine issue should not be the only lens for the international community to see the country, that the need for political reform and a wider peace process remains real, and that the recent armed conflict between Myanmar military forces and the Kachin ethnic insurgents along the border with China shows that stability cannot be taken for granted.
