Moving Towards Understanding and Reconciliation in Myanmar’s Rakhine State

Recent comments by the commander of the Arakan Army have prompted a heated debate about history, language, and ethnic identity.

In discussions of Myanmar’s intricate ethnic tapestry, the discourse around identity, particularly the term “Rohingya,” remains highly charged and complex. The controversy was reawakened last month, when the United League of Arakan/Arakan Army (ULA/AA), an ethnic Rakhine insurgent group fighting for autonomy from the central state, used the term “Bengali” in an official statement in lieu of the term “Rohingya.” This was then echoed in social media posts by Twan Mrat Naing, the leader of ULA/AA, sparking significant controversy among both domestic and international observers.

Will Myanmar’s Militias Relinquish Control After Victory?

Myanmar’s junta has been on the back foot for quite some time now. The militias waging a civil war against the central government are gaining ground and start to plan the post-war order. Yet one ethnic minority remains marginalized.

Myanmar’s generals do not have much to celebrate these days. February 1st did present an occasion for any Putschists in a particularly festive mood: the three-year anniversary of the military coup. The 2021 takeover of the elected government of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi permanently ended the generals’ brief flirt with democratic governance. Ever since, the conflict between the Tatmadaw, as the military is known, and regional ethnic insurgents dominates life in Myanmar.
