Podcast: Kachin IDPs eye a return home

Nine years after fighting resumed between the Tatmadaw and the Kachin Independence Army, internally displaced people in Kachin State say they want to go home.

Facing obstacles including landmines and a stalled peace process, we talk to them about what lies ahead.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast which looks at human rights issues, produced by Frontier with media partners from around the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle. It is supported by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation.

Listen in Burmese.
