The Australian National University is home to one of the largest concentrations of Myanmar/Burma specialists in the world. ANU has played a central role in regional debate about political, social and economic change and reform in Myanmar/Burma.
The ANU Myanmar Research Centre was launched in 2015. Since then, the Centre has served as the university’s academic hub for Myanmar activities. The Centre provides a flexible and inclusive structure to maintain its activities, build relationships with our Myanmar partners, and create new opportunities for ANU staff and students.
Currently, the Myanmar Research Centre:
- provides a central online showcase of ANU-Myanmar activities;
- facilitates communication among ANU scholars working on Myanmar;
- supports academic interaction with Myanmar-related visitors to ANU;
- coordinates research grant applications;
- consolidates relevant Myanmar activities under one over-arching umbrella.
