During her February tour of Asia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the new U.S. administration would review its policy toward Burma because neither Western sanctions nor Asian engagement seemed to move the stubborn military regime toward political reform. Quite predictably, her statement ignited a flurry of speculation that it signaled the end of the U.S. sanctions regime against Burma. Priscilla Clapp discusses U.S. Burma policy and the prospects for change.
