Australia Myanmar Institute (AMI) 2017 Conference

AMI 2017 Conference

Building on the success of AMI’s 2015 conference on Myanmar and the Millennium Development Goals, the 2017 conference, also co-organised with the Myanmar Institute for Strategic and International Studies (MISIS), will bring together participants from government, academia, civil society and the public policy sphere to discuss Myanmar’s progress towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 2017 Conference will provide an opportunity to:

  • Review Myanmar’s priorities and progress towards addressing the SDGs
  • Enable participants to engage with the contemporary evidence base
  • Illustrate some of the mechanisms through which the Sustainable Development Goals can be met
  • Point to effective pathways for international collaboration with Myanmar’s Government and civil society
  • Lead to the publication of a diverse series of academic and policy papers by both Myanmar and international participants.



Since 2013, the Australia Myanmar Institute (AMI) has worked to facilitate Australian and international education institutions, government and non-governmental organisations, and businesses working with Myanmar counterparts in strengthening research, public policy and its implementation in Myanmar.

The 2017 Conference will impact both public policy and the academic knowledge base

Given the breadth of the 2015 Conference – including significant discussions on such topics as gender, the peace process, environmental issues, mining, education, and corporate social responsibility – we are hoping for a diversity of publications from the 2017 Conference.

Academic papers will be peer-reviewed and published after the conference to provide a significant addition to the growing body of knowledge and evidence available to researchers on Myanmar. This will materially assist future research as well as add value to Myanmar’s own SDG achievement program.

Other papers, provided by non-academic participants, will be published separately but will also help business, NGOs and others establish meaningful collaboration on developmental and policy topics.


The Australia Myanmar Institute is again partnering with Yangon University and the Myanmar Institute of Strategic and International Studies (MISIS) to deliver the 2017 Conference.
