UN General Assembly 2015: Updates since the 2014 UNGA Resolution on Burma/Myanmar

By Altsean-Burma and FIDH  •  November 4, 2015

The Burmese authorities have failed to implement most of the recommendations from previous United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions, despite recent ones being adopted by consensus, in particular Resolution 69/248 adopted in 2014. The information presented in this briefer refers directly to the language proposed for the 2015 UNGA Resolution. In 2015, authorities continued to either fail to address, or collude in serious human rights violations, and took steps to undermine the possibility of ‘free and fair’ elections on 8 November. These developments seriously compromise the possibility of progress toward genuine democracy and national reconciliation in Burma. This briefer summarizes developments on the ground with direct reference to key paragraphs of the 2014 resolution and includes Altsean Burma’s recommended text for the 2015 UNGA resolution.
