Using the 2015 Myanmar Asian Barometer Survey, this essay highlights the challenges ahead for Burma’s democratization. Despite the decisive victory of prodemocratic forces, Myanmar’s political culture and, in particular, its illiberal values, gaps in democratic citizenship, and demands for economic development pose daunting challenges for the new government and will place strain on the ongoing democratization process. The findings point to the need for civic education to deepen support for democracy.
