What is the difference between "functional state failure" and "state collapse", and what is the likelihood of a reduction in conflict in Myanmar's near future? Nicola Williams, PhD Candidate at the Australian National University, talks through how she sees the current contested state of the "State" in Myanmar, primarily stressing the importance of the politics of ethnicity. This seminar was recorded as part of the Myanmar Update 2021 conference held at the Myanmar Research Centre.
