In order to restore peace and enable the country to move forward, much needs to be done. First, all individuals in Arakan state need protection, regardless of their citizenship status. Second, poverty must be addressed. Third, economic reform must be accompanied by legal reform so that people can rely on an impartial system of justice. And finally, Myanmar's most well-known leaders must jointly endorse a new narrative which recognises the contributions that all of Myanmar's inhabitants can make to the country's success. India, which has had its own challenges in forging a union of diverse peoples, has a useful role to play in all of this, by sharing its experiences and supporting inclusive development in Myanmar.
