Building peace in Kyauk Phyu

This project aimed to influence new forms of collaboration around the fledgling foreign investment and economic development in Kyauk Phyu, in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

Kyauk Phyu is located at the centre of a strategically important 'special economic zone' (SEZ). It is also located in a state where violent conflict between Buddhist and Muslim communities undermines equitable development. New economic investment could help build long-term peace in the area, but only if it is done in a conflict-sensitive way.
