David I. Steinberg, Distinguished Professor of Asian Studies, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, explains that regarding civil society reforms in Burma/Myanmar, “Progress is evident, but the processes are likely to be sporadic and uneven. The Burmese will proceed at their own pace and foreign observers can assist, but not control that process.”
