Why is British aid being spent on Burma’s dead end peace process?

The British government is spending millions of pounds supporting the peace process in Burma, but since the peace process began, conflict and human rights violations have increased.

 

The Karen Peace Support Network, a coalition of ethnic Karen community organisations, are asking the British government to review its support for the peace process. They say Burma’s peace process has reached a ‘dead end’ and they fear the current peace process will end up prolonging conflict, rather than ending it.

 

MPs on the International Development Committee in the British Parliament also asked for a review of support, but so far the Department for International Development are refusing to do so.
