Abstract or Description

For years, most of Myanmar’s ethnic minorities, including the Kachin, have put their faith in Aung San Suu Kyi to reconcile the country. Her landslide victory in the country’s historic 2015 elections, was not least secured through the support from ethnic minority voters. As armed conflict has continued and even intensied since Aung San Suu Kyi’s rise to power, many of these erstwhile supporters feel betrayed.
