Network Myanmar

                 Who We Were


Network Myanmar was set up in the summer of 2007 to assist the process of reconciliation and rehabilitation in Myanmar, a country which has suffered so grievously ever since it gained its independence from Britain on 4 January 1948.

At the Annual General Meeting of the association held on 21 July 2012 it was agreed that our Charter objectives,  which stressed our commitment to dialogue and our concern for people to people contact and interaction, had been met spectacularly by the dramatic developments in Myanmar since the civilianised government came to power on 30 March 2011.

In these very favourable conditions, it was agreed that there was no longer any purpose or requirement to maintain the association as an operational organisation.

The activities of the Management Committee were accordingly adjourned sine die at their final meeting on 9 March 2013.

A subidiary purpose of this website today is to draw your attention to archived sources of the former website of Network Myanmar.

The main contents were transferred to the ISEAS "SeaLion PLUS" database set up in 2015. The contents are available as a research resource for general use and as a record of events relating to Myanmar's First Parliament of the 21st Century, whose term was from 30 March 2011 to 30 March 2016. Registration with ISEAS is required.

Between October 2007 and October 2016, the Network Myanmar  website was regularly ‘captured’ by the Wayback Machine at Examples of this capture during 2016 may be found at this link. The archived website may not load as rapidly as a live website. The 8 October 2016 capture is the latest available which seems to have been generally 'crawled' by robots, but in the event of difficulty, select a capture from an earlier day.

The Wayback Machine has continued to capture this new website under the same URL designation which has not changed.
