This paper examines a thesis of whether an economic assistance of its cancellation or withdrawal, or economic sanction at large, has a capacity to change a regime, taking an example from a repressive country Myanmar. Recently a massive aid has been extended to fragile countries in order to support their democratization efforts. However, despite what has been claimed or expected by policy-makers, it is unknown whether an economic assistance could have such an enforcing institutional power. A foreign aid could make a fragile system even more vulnerable to various uncertainties. This paper looks various forces surrounding Myanmar and makes a case for an effective policy intervention for Japan.
