Abstract

Yaa baa, « le médicament qui rend fou ». En Thaïlande le surnom de la méthamphétamine sonne comme un avertissement, mais il n’a pas dissuadé des centaines de milliers de Thaïlandais, jeunes pour la plupart, de s’y adonner avec plus ou moins de retenue. « Drogue de travail » ou « drogue de loisir », il s’agit d’un véritable phénomène de société qui n’est pas étranger aux évolutions économiques et aux mutations culturelles qu’a connues le royaume au cours de ces dernières décennies. Ce livre s’efforce de donner des explications à un engouement qui touche également d’autres pays de la région. Il replace la consommation de méthamphétamine dans les logiques du narcotrafic dont les ressorts sont à rechercher aux marges orientales de la Birmanie, en plein cœur du Triangle d’Or.

Abstract

Myanmar, the second biggest country in terms of area in mainland South East Asia, borders five neighboring countries: China, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, and Lao PDR. Myanmar's longest borders are with China (approximately 1,357 miles) and Thailand (approximately 1,314 miles), and it shares coastal waters with Malaysia and Singapore. Informal activities and informal moment of goods and people have been quite significant due to many factors. Although various policy measures have been developed to mitigate these informal activities, there has not been any study regarding the sources of these informal activities, their costs and benefits, impacts and consequences of the existence and non-existence of these activities, or how these activities could be mitigated without having significant negative economic and social impacts on the local people and the economy as the whole. This paper attempts to identify factors behind causes and effects of informal flows in goods and persons across the borders between Myanmar and its neighboring countries, especially China and Thailand, and to address related issues and possible policy implications. This paper is a result of various surveys and studies in many places in Myanmar, Lao PDR, Thailand, and China from 2005 to 2009 under several research projects.
