Student Activism in Asia

This chapter discusses repressive measures employed by military authorities against student activism in Burma. Burmese university students were once considered as one of the main social groups fighting for political, economic, and social change, but successive military-led governments have been able to establish a new regime that weakened the power of student activists. Military authorities disrupted student activism and forced it to go underground by eliminating or undermining structures and institutions that facilitate student mobilization, leading some students to give up activism. The unprecedented repression and the increased restrictions constrained future student activism in Burma.
