A year after the National League for Democracy (NLD) won Myanmar’s first democratic election in decades, is disaffection setting in? It appears so. This month, the government, led by the figure of Aung San Suu Kyi, came under attack for its handling of escalating tensions in Rakhine state, with reports of grave human rights abuses committed by the military. This comes as pressure mounts on the NLD and Suu Kyi from varying groups and communities to come good on its promise of social change and justice.
