The Irrawaddy and SEA Junction have joined together to provide bi-weekly updates on the latest developments in Myanmar. Since 1 February 2021, Myanmar has been in turmoil as the Myanmar army, known as the Tatmadaw, detained State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint following a general election which Suu Kyi’s NLD party won by a landslide. The coup led by General Min Aung Hlaing brought an end to a decade of semi-democratic rule and returned full power to the military.
Announcement: The submission deadline for the contributors has been extended to March 31st.
ALTERSEA is hosted by Centre Asie du Sud-Est, Paris. We study social movements and social activism, as well as systems of social regulation that are less visible but sustain local capacities of political action. Our observatory develops a variety of axis of study in six clusters: environmentalism, religiosities, cultural heritage, political participation, non-merchant transactions, subjectivities & subjugation.
We work in partnership with several scientific institutions in France, Southeast Asia and abroad, under the supervision of a scientific council, and in connection with working groups in the different countries studied. In addition to the qualitative field surveys that we encourage, we emphasize the participation of alter-political groups and the local populations.
