Aaron SteinBurma’s Suspicious Defense Facility

What is Burma building in the jungle?

In this week’s podcast, Jeffrey and Aaron discuss Jeffrey’s and Catherine Dill’s two recent pieces on Burma’s very large – and very suspicious – facility in Pauk. The conversation begins with a discussion about the facility and then pivots to the Obama administration’s outreach to the Burmese government. The conversation concludes with a discussion about ongoing human rights abuses against the Rohingya muslims and the difficulties of democratization.


Jeffrey and Aaron discussed a number of articles during the podcast including:

Catherine Dill and Jeffrey Lewis, “Suspect Defense Facility in Myanmar,” Center for Nonproliferation Studies, May 9, 2014.

Jeffrey Lewis and Catherine Dill, “Myanmar’s Unrepentant Arms Czar,” Foreign Policy, May 9, 2014.

Mehmet Kalyoncu, “Who will hear the Rohingya people‚Äôs cry?,” Today’s Zaman, July 25, 2012.
