Helping Burma Through India

This booklet was published in 2011 by the Czech NGO Burma Center Prague. It aims to highlight the problems faced by refugees from Burma who live in India, but also tries to point out ways they, as active members of civil society, can contribute to the transformation of Burma towards a genuine and participative democracy.

In this spirit of involving and empowering those who are most affected, we decided give much of the space in this publication to the voices of activists who themselves are
refugees. Topics covered in their articles include: Chin refugees,refugee women, health care, education, and Burmese media.

It remains to be seen how this place of authenticity will be reshaped by mass tourism as a force of globalisation in the near future, and how the state of Myanmar will responsibly respond to the challenges brought about by mass tourism.
