The author L Gum Ja Htung takes a comprehensive look at how large-scaleland concessions in Kachin areas of north Shan State in Myanmar are perceived and responded to by local people. Through careful analysis of the history of conflict in Myanmar it is illustrated that economic development projects in this area rarely deliver what they promise and instead can be interpreted as a state-building strategy by the central government to gain access and control in ethnic conflict zones through land grabbing. Gum Ja’s insider perspective offers a fascinating assessment of why and how diverse actors collaborated to successfully resist the government’s plans for a 600,000 acres biofuel plantation crossing Muse and Lashio Districts.

L Gum Ja Htung completed his Master’s in Development Studies at Chiang Mai University. He has worked with various agencies in development and human rights, and spent several years as a Program Coordinator at World Concern Northern Shan State. At the time of publication he is the Research Coordinator at Land Core Group in Yangon, Myanmar.
