Land issues in Myanmar are complex and driven by both formal and informal institutional
practices of the interactions between the neoliberal agenda, state interventions, power relations
and exploitation. Generally, Land grabbing can be perceived as a means for political and economic
elite classes to benefit not only from exploitation, but also as a boost to their traditional social status
and political power (Kyaw Thein 2012). However, land grabbing in ethnic areas is interconnect with
militarization strategy and economic development because it have been used as a process of military
state-building to control ethnic areas.
