Trouble in the Triangle

Opium and the Conflict in Burma

This collection of essays discusses issues on international engagement with Burma through the prism of drug policy. Essays analyze the relationship between drugs and conflict in Burma, the consequences of Burma’s illicit drug production for neighboring countries, and place Burma in the international context of the global drug trade, drawing parallels with Afghanistan and Colombia. The collection takes an in-depth look at the long and dramatic history of drugs, armed conflict, ethnic strife, and cease-fire agreements in Burma and presents recommendations for a humane and effective response from the international community.
