social protection in Myanmar

January 3, 2012


The first post in this new year will refer to some of my posts in 2011, namely those on Myanmar. The Centre for Social Protection/IDS has just published a new Working Paper by Yoshimi Nishino and Gabrielle Koehler on the potential for social protection in Myanmar. The paper provides a clear call for a comprehensive social protection strategy in the country, and discusses various options against the backdrop of other experiences in the region. Although the challenges are numerous, related to political challenges as well as the widespread vulnerability across the country, the paper is also mildly positive given the changing policy landscape and the potential opportunities that may arise.
