Title: Burma Religious Freedom Landscape Report
Author: Timothy S. Shah
The Burma Religious Freedom Landscape Report provides a thorough analysis of the legal, political, and social conditions that shape religious freedom in this country and the prospects for advancing it in the future.
In Burma, religion has long been intertwined with nationality, ethnicity, identity and, as a result, politics. This is true for the military and Burmese political parties, but it is also the case
for many of the ethnic nationalities. The Burma Religious Freedom Landscape Report delves into each of these factors and provides an account of the social hostility and legal restrictions that pose grave challenges to religious freedom in this country. While unequivocal about the challenges, the report also outlines strengths and opportunities for advancing religious freedom in Burma today.
