While the crisis is still raging in Myanmar, borders areas are under high migration and health pressure among others. Since the coup, thousands of people, fleeing violence of the Tatmadaw, try to make their way to borders, finding themselves in a very vulnerable situation -if not under fire again- hoping to get into a refugee camp or in any safer area in neighboring countries. In turn, the influx is a burden for the latter. Adding again to the complexity of the situation in a context of notorious underdevelopment, borders areas have already known over decades regular waves of migrants, the overall move leading to a humanitarian crisis.

What about the humanitarian condition and how is life for inhabitants, displaced people and refugees there today ? Can humanitarian support effectively reach border areas ? Is the most recent influx (since the coup) reconfiguring political and ethnic environment ? Can International Relation —including from neighboring countries— play a role and pressure on Myanmar junta on a short to long-term perspective for improvement of the situation and easing of migration, if not for a way out of the crisis ?
