    ...This chapter has described aspects of forced migration in Burma that
    are under-researched, including the phenomenon of serial displacement,
    and has proposed a three-part typology. Many internally displaced
    persons and others move repeatedly, sometimes for a combination
    of reasons; others have been displaced for some time and have found
    at least semi-durable solutions to their plight; many are living mixed
    with communities who are not—or have not recently been—displaced.
    Forced migrants’ needs can be assessed and appropriate interventions

    Summary:
    "...
    In the past two years, the reform process proposed in the “seven-point road map
    for national reconciliation and democratic transition”, which was meant to become
    eventually open to various relevant actors, has been strictly limited and delineated.
    As a result, the political space has been redefined in narrower terms. In addition,
    obstructions in the past couple of years have held back the pace and inclusive nature
    of the reforms which were required for democratization. The work of the National

    With the annual monsoon rains now falling over Karen State, the SPDC’s military offensive
    against civilian villagers in northern Karen State would normally be drawing to a close.
    However, quite the opposite is happening. The resumption of SPDC Army attacks on
    villages and the increased patrols in Toungoo District shows that the offensive is far from
    over. Thousands more landmines have been reportedly deployed across Toungoo District to
    isolate certain parts of the district and restrict villagers’ movements. An analysis of SPDC

    Burma's former capital is still the country's commercial hub...

    The sudden relocation of Burma's capital may have sent government officials and Burmese civil servants moving north to Pyinmana, but for those involved in business Rangoon is still the center of Burma's commercial universe.

    The new capital's largest port and its main airport. While Pyinmana remains cut off from the outside world, the former capital has direct international flights to such cities as Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei...

    ...SPDC troops in northern Papun district continue to escalate their attacks, shooting villagers, burning villages and destroying ricefields. Undefended villages in far northern Papun district are now being shelled with powerful 120mm mortars. Three battalions from Toungoo district have rounded up hundreds of villagers as porters and are detaining their families in schools in case they're needed; this column is now heading south with its porters, apparently intending to trap displaced villagers in a pincer between themselves and the troops coming north from Papun district.

    Villagers in northern Pa'an District of central Karen State say their livelihoods are under serious threat due to exploitation by SPDC military authorities and by their Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA) allies who rule as an SPDC proxy army in much of the region. Villages in the vicinity of the DKBA headquarters are forced to give much of their time and resources to support the headquarters complex, while villages directly under SPDC control face rape, arbitrary detention and threats to keep them compliant with SPDC demands. The SPDC plans to expand Dta Greh (a.k.a.

    Conclusions:
    4.1 Indications of labour exploitation
    The findings clearly show that being forced to work
    is not uncommon in the fishing sector. About a fifth
    of migrants have either previously experienced being
    forced to work or are currently being forced to work.
    Migrants working on fishing boats, female workers in
    fish processing and children tend to experience forced
    labour more than male workers in fish processing
    and adult workers in general. The findings show
    that employment aboard fishing vessels often means
