Abstract
Handling the trafficking of women in Myanmar is important because women done by
transnational organized crime (transnational crime) can threaten national security in terms
of non-military aspects. In the dynamics of the Myanmar politics, there is a transition of
power in 2010 from military regime to democratic regime. This study discusses the
compararison in the two regimes in handling women trafficking. A comparative study in
the handling of women trafficking victim can not be separated from public policy agenda
in each government. The two different regimes generate policies and cooperation in
dealing with women trafficking, both at national and international community, which is
implemented by arranging cooperation with several countries. Outcome from different
policies taken by the two regimes in tackling women trafficking can be seen in the number
of women trafficking victims’ fluctuation. This study concludes that there is similarity
between the two governments in the relation to women trafficking policy, in which the two
regimes establish cooperation. However, this study also finds that democratic system tend
to be more effective in handling women trafficking in Myanmar, compared to authoritarian
system in military government.
