Welcome!

We are a community of Myanmar-focused researchers based primarily in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. To foster academic exchange we founded the Myanmar-Institut e.V. in December 2016.

Many of our members live in Berlin, so that monthly meetings are one of our central activities here. We meet other institutional actors like foundations and NGOs active in Myanmar or come together to discuss the latest research progress of one of our members.  To foster exchange and the advancement of Myanmar Studies we also organize an annual conference since three years, which draws a constantly increasing number of participants.

At the moment, our association counts 44 active members from a wide array of scientific disciplines, such as geography, area studies, linguistics, political science and cultural anthropology. Feel free to browse the list of members to learn more about individual expertise and field of research.

This website is still work in progress but be assured that we will continuously add up-to-date information.

We also welcome your input, so don’t hesitate to contact us!
