The PK Forum began in 2012 as a place to discuss and debate issues of development, civil society and aid in Myanmar. The Forum is now supported and edited by the Myanmar Research Network at the University of Melbourne


PK stands for Paung Ku which in Burmese means bridging or connection - and this Forum aims to connect academics, aid workers, local organisations, government, and students around key questions of Myanmar's future.

This means we are interested in your ideas. Please send us your ideas for articles or blogs or for uploading new stuff to our resource section. Articles can be in English, Burmese or ethnic languages, but need to be less than 500 words. These can be emailed to Tamas Wells at the University of Melbourne (Forum Editor) at

While supported and edited by the Myanmar Research Network at the University of Melbourne, and originating from the 'Paung Ku' initiative, the Forum does not represent the views of the Myanmar Research Network or Myanmar NGO Paung Ku. The views expressed in this Forum are those of the individuals involved.
