    War disrupts the normal relationship between people and place.

    'place' - both the physical space they occupy and their position in

    ...Under military control, rural Burma's subsistence farming village is losing its viability as the basic unit of society. Internally displaced people are usually thought to have fled military battles in and around their villages, but this paradigm doesn't apply to Burma.

    Executive Summary:
    "The impact of decades of military repression on
    the population of Burma has been devastating.
    Hundreds of thousands of Burmese have been
    displaced by the government�s suppression of
    ethnic insurgencies and of the pro-democracy
    movement. As government spending has concentrated
    on military expenditures to maintain its
    control, the once-vibrant Burmese economy has
    been virtually destroyed. Funding for health and
    education is negligible, leaving the population at
