The Burmese authorities have failed to implement most of the recommendations from previous United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions, despite recent ones being adopted by consensus, in particular Resolution 69/248 adopted in 2014. The information presented in this briefer refers directly to the language proposed for the 2015 UNGA Resolution.

This briefer summarizes developments on the ground with direct reference to key paragraphs of the 2014 resolution and includes Altsean-Burma's recommended text for the 2015 UNGA resolution.
