Monthly Socio-Economic Analysis for December

One of the main reasons the Myanmar Civil War longer was the unjust Constitution that has been in place for ages. After the 1962 military coup, the Civil War began to intensify, and the federal dream of ethnic minorities has faded to this day. In all ages, successive military governments never developed the country except by focusing on priority for their perpetuation of power and self–interest. Now, after the 2021 military coup, the country is in the same situation as before and the armed clashes across the country have become more intense.
Nearly two years after seizing power, the military junta is still struggling to control the country due to widespread popular armed resistance against them. In response, the military junta resorted to air and artillery to crush the resistance, killing more than 2641 people, 16651 were arrested including civilians, and over 1.6 million have been displaced. Presently, the country (Myanmar) is falling into a failed State with various collapses and internal instability.
In addition, due to the severe consequences of the military coup, the market economic system has been damaged, the financial inflation problems, the high price problem of goods and services, and the unemployment rate are felt by the grassroots people. On the other hand, the social (education and health) sectors have been deteriorating like other sectors for almost two years. The education and healthcare sectors are still far from a system that is accessible to everyone. Additionally, the rule of law has completely collapsed and reached zero level due to the impact of the coup. People’s safety and security conditions are getting worse and theft, rough rides, robberies, and murders cases are significantly higher than before.
