Attacks on Health and Education: Trends and incidents from eastern Burma, 2010-2011

This report presents primary evidence of attacks on education and health in eastern Burma collected by KHRG during the period February 2010 to May 2011.

Civilian communities in eastern Burma continue to face attacks and threats of attacks by Burma's state armed forces, the Tatmadaw, as well as non-state armed groups (NSAGs).

Section I of this report details KHRG research methodology;

Section II analyses general trends in armed conflict and details a loose typology of attacks identified during the reporting period.

Section III applies this typology to 16 particularly illustrative incidents, and analyses them in light of relevant international humanitarian law and UN Security Council resolutions 1612, 1882 and 1998. These incidents were selected from a database detailing 59 attacks on civilians documented by KHRG between February 2010 and May 2011.
