    Liberia, Sierra Leone

    The wars in Liberia and Sierra Leone have been linked to the condition of urbanized youth. Recent research in southeastern Sierra Leone and northwestern Liberia suggests the rural context is of greater significance. The fighting was mainly in rural areas, involved mainly rural youth, and adapted itself to their local concerns. A model of war as the work of urban criminal gangs, reflecting local student politics in the 1970s and embraced internationally, is ripe for replacement by a model of war as agrarian revolt.

    Myanmar

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
    "The Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC) first collaborated with communitybased
    organizations to document the scale and distribution of internal displacement
    in Eastern Burma during 2002. Two years later, another survey was coordinated to
    enhance understanding about the vulnerability of internally displaced persons. These
    assessments sought to increase awareness about the situation in conflict-affected
    areas which remain largely inaccessible to the international community.
