The Somerset County Gazette – not, I might add, a regular source here on New Mandala – has a handy article profiling a British civil servant, Richard Butterworth, who is currently based in Yangon. His perspective, from the ranks of the British aid bureaucracy, is one we don’t tend to get to read all that often. The article is worth a look for anyone considering a career in that line of work, or just curious to see what Butterworth has to say about Burma.
