Lall, MarieSouth, AshleyOpen Society FoundationsPERI Global2013

This paper is the product of a PERI-funded research project, conducted between May and November 2011. It addresses the research question “How has the agreement of a ceasefire between an armed ethno-nationalist group and the military government affected the provision of non-state education for the Mon community, and how does this compare to the situation in Mon and Karen-populated areas not affected by a ceasefire?” The research examined the provision, funding and regulation of non-state ethnic minority education regimes in Burma/Myanmar, and analyzed the roles of various stakeholders, including teachers, parents, domestic and international donors.
