In this episode, Dr. Happymon Jacob discusses the military coup in Myanmar with Dr.
Avinash Paliwal (Deputy Director, SOAS South Asia Institute, London). Dr. Paliwal unpacks the
undercurrents of domestic politics in Myanmar and the tensions in Civil-Military relations in order to
explain the triggers for the military takeover. He identifies India’s stakes in Myanmar within the
larger ambit of India-China strategic rivalry. Dr Paliwal also analyses the trajectory of politics in
Myanmar and the future of Aung San Suu-Kyi.
