Orientalisation and Manufacturing of ‘Civil Society’ in Contemporary Burma

In this well-researched book chapter, Dr Zarni takes a critical look at how expertise, donor funding, political power and the organisational influence of Western – and outside – entities operate in manufacturing perceptions of certain social realities in Burma and how the Burmese understand their own situation under the world’s oldest military dictatorship (1962–present).
