Director of the Asian Peace-building & Rule of Law Program (APRL) at SMU School of Law, Mahdev Mohan, co-wrote a commentary on investment in Myanmar. He said that although Myanmar has instituted a series of political reforms that will attract investors to the country, companies should respect human rights and not let the gold rush result in human abuse. He added that the Centre for Corporate & Investor Responsibility at the Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics at SMU is currently studying how countries such as Myanmar should address human rights risks. The studies show that the prudent use of resources could help the country overcome poverty, but human abuses coupled with conflict, corruption and corporate complicity could lead to significant business-related harm.
