9781849465977: Law, Society and Transition in Myanmar

This is the first edited volume to address the dynamics of the legal system of Myanmar/Burma in the context of the dramatic transition to democracy that formally began in 2011. The book includes contributions from leading scholars in the field on a range of key legal issues now facing Myanmar, such as judicial independence, constitutional law, human rights, and institutional reform. It features chapters on the legal history of Myanmar, electoral reform, the role of the judiciary, economic reform, and the state of company law. It also includes chapters that draw on the experiences of other countries to contextualize Myanmar's transition to democracy in a comparative setting, including Myanmar's participation in regional bodies, such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations/ASEAN. The book is topical and comes at a critical juncture in Myanmar's legal development and will be an invaluable resource for students and teachers seeking greater understanding of the legal system of Myanmar. It will also be vital reading for a wide range of government, business, and civil society organizations seeking to re-engage with Myanmar as it navigates a difficult transition toward democracy and the rule of law. [Subject: Comparative Law, Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Human Rights Law, Legal History, Asian Studies, Politics]

Review:

.this volume will serve as a good reference work for scholars interested in Myanmar by highlighting the importance of legal reform in its nascent transition. For legal practitioners, it can give a taste of how principles of common law are implanted into codified laws, the cost of neglecting law reform, and how any legal regime is influenced by those who use it. (Coral Bell Australian Journal of Administrative Law)

...a magisterial book that expertly analyses several development in modern Myanmmar. (Mahdev Mohan Asian Journal of Comparative Law)
