The Burmese authorities have failed to implement most of the recommendations from previous United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions, in particular Resolution 68/242, adopted in 2013. In some areas, the situation has deteriorated as a result of deliberate actions by the authorities.

So far, 2014 has been marred by an overall climate of impunity that has seen a resurgence of media repression, the ongoing sentencing of human rights defenders, an increase in the number of land ownership disputes, and ongoing attacks on civilians by the Tatmadaw in Kachin and Shan States amid nationwide ceasefire negotiations.

This briefer summarizes developments on the ground with direct reference to key paragraphs of the resolution.
