AbstractAfter decades of harsh and unyielding dictatorship, the first general election in Myanmar (Burma) was held in November 2010. The rudimentary features of the democratic process began to be unveiled as military leaders began to campaign, eventually resulting in a huge victory of the military's chosen party. This exercise in popular sovereignty was controversial and divisive. In the wake of the election, Myanmar is now governed by an abrasive military autocracy. How international society might handle the challenges posed by such a difficult regime is discussed.
