Myanmarforschung 2015: Interdisziplinäre Tagung zur Vernetzung der deutschsprachigen Myanmarforschenden

Georg Winterberger


Myanmar is facing a phase of change. The opening of the country in 2011 has consequences on the political, economic and social level. This phase is very complex and not yet thoroughly explored and understood, therefore, there is a growing number of scientists who do or plan research in Myanmar. The conference “Myanmarforschung 2015 – Interdisziplinäre Tagung zur Vernetzung der deutschsprachigen Myanmarforschenden” (Myanmar research 2015 – interdisciplinary conference for networking of German speaking Myanmar researchers), which was held from July 23th to 25th 2015 at the University of Zurich, had the aim to give a platform to these scientists for sharing their knowledge. This paper gives an overview and background information about this conference and it reports about the presentations, which were held in Zurich.
