MYANMAR INSTITUTE OF STRATEGIC AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES

(Myanmar-ISIS)

MYANMAR-ISIS AIMS TO ACT AS AN ACADEMIC INSTITUTE CONCERNED WITH THE STUDY OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND FOREIGN POLICY



Warmest greetings and welcome to our website.


Due to 50 years of political and economic self isolation from the rest of the world, Myanmar has been somewhat deprived of intellectual platforms where research can be carried out and ideas can be exchanged. The very concept of think-tanks has only recently gained ground in Myanmar, and information gaps still need to be filled.

That is the objective of Myanmar-ISIS: to fill those gaps, with a focus on the analysis of international relations and foreign policy formulations. Here at Myanmar-ISIS we openly welcome Myanmar researchers, especially young and talented ones, as well as collaboration with think-tanks from around the world.

Whilst building a research institute in Myanmar is a long process, we hope with the help of our partners, to be the catalyst for something wonderful. We want young people to be able to use this as a resource to learn, and ideally contribute with their own thoughts, resulting in them being long-term participants in the country's development.

On our website you can find out about our visions, goals, events, projects and publications. We also provide news from different Myanmar sources, and if you feel so inclined, you are welcome to subscribe to our newsletter.

If you have any queries or an interest in collaborating, please do not hesitate to contact us. Let us work together for a better future of our country and people.


H.E. U NYUNT MAUNG SHEIN
CHAIRMAN OF THE INSTITUTE
