Backgrounder
Burma has undertaken a series of reforms at a pace no one anticipated just a few short years ago. The Obama Administration’s policy toward Burma lacks sufficient protections against Burmese backsliding on reforms. Congress should reassert its role in Burma policy by setting precise criteria for Burma’s progress and tying failure to achieve these benchmarks to re-imposition of the major U.S. sanctions.
