Depriving someone of their freedom is a terrible violation. Modern slavery is a destructive, personal crime and an abuse of human rights. It is a widespread and profitable criminal industry but despite this it is largely invisible, in part because it disproportionately affects the most marginalised. This is why measuring this problem is so crucial in exposing and ultimately resolving it. The information contained within the Global Slavery Index is critical in these efforts.

Myanmar’s military said Wednesday that it has been returning to its rightful owners all unused lands it confiscated for decades from farmers, a day after a damning report by a human rights group said the country’s civilian government had largely failed to deliver on a pledge to seek justice for those whose property was taken.
“Some of the military-confiscated lands were not used,” Colonel Zaw Min Tun from the information department at the office of military commander-in-chief Senior General Min Aung Haling told RFA’s Myanmar Service.

Groupe URD 2017 Annual Report
As I take up my pen to write this President’s Report, my thoughts turn to Claire Pirotte, co-founder of Groupe URD, asking me to stand as President of Groupe URD in July 2017 so that she could face Death, which would finally get the better of her in early 2018. A socially committed and generous woman, she left behind a Groupe URD that is active in all the major crisis contexts in the world, and puts all its energy into bringing a little creative reflection to them.

NAYPYITAW — The United Wa State Army (UWSA), the biggest armed ethnic group in Myanmar, still has concerns over possible future scenarios if it were to sign the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA), said former Lieutenant-General U Khin Zaw Oo, secretary of the government’s Peace Commission.
“They don’t categorically reject the NCA, but they seem to have some concerns over what might happen after signing it. But it is fair to say that they have basically accepted the NCA,” U Khin Zaw Oo said.
