Who We Are
Tom Satoshi Lambert
Tom Lambert is a political and development analyst who has a particular focus on how local and international development organizations are operating across Myanmar. Experience working on Myanmar for Chatham House in London and the European Union in Yangon has given him a broad local network of Myanmar political actors, civil society organizations, and local researchers, enabling him to gather up to date and granular information down to the village level.
His core strength is his analytical capability to examine micro-level social changes in the context of overarching political and economic trends in Myanmar. Tom speaks intermediate Burmese and Japanese, leads the Myanmar Governance Network and holds degrees from Warwick University.
