Reflections on building an inclusive higher education system in Myanmar

Dr Mandy Sadan is a former British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow, and is now Reader in the History of South East Asia at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. Her British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Monograph, 'Being and Becoming Kachin: Histories Beyond the State in the Borderworlds of Burma' (published in September 2013), considers why the Kachin State (in the north of Burma, sharing borders with China and India) has such a long history of armed resistance against the political heartland of Burma. In the following article, Dr Sadan considers the implications of the recent changes in Burma for the development of an inclusive higher education system.
