[Joint Analysis] A coalition of the unwilling: ASEAN’s response to the crisis in Burma/Myanmar

The international community has repeatedly called on ASEAN to address the situation in Burma, but ASEAN action has been inadequate and the situation has worsened. Armed clashes and attacks on civilians rose by around 27% after the 24 Apr ASEAN meeting. The junta increased attacks on NLD & NUG members, and charged associates with treason.

ASEAN did nothing to facilitate dialogue between the junta and the civilian NUG. It took over six months to appoint a special envoy to Burma, who has not met with the NUG or facilitated dialogue, his two mandates. It began facilitating humanitarian aid in August through the junta, which has consistently undermined public health response and is both incapable and untrustworthy.
