dc.description.abstractThis research investigates the linkage between highway road accidents and human rights issues in Myanmar. It mainly emphasizes from the point of human rights on the weaknesses of the related highway road laws and regulations and, how the laws applied to passenger rights concerning on road accidents before and after the accidents occurred along the road. There are increasing numbers of highway road accidents in recent years for the whole country, but this research mainly highlighted on the new highway road between Yangon city and Mandalay city which is built hastily in 2005. The research conducted with qualitative and quantitative methods which include purposive sampling, semi-constructive questionnaires, constructive questionnaires and survey data, and thematic analysis to understand the depth of issue. The research explores the reasons why there are so many accidents in the said road and the underlying causes behind those accidents, the human rights issues emerged from those accidents and the State's required obligations to promote right to life and right to health of passengers as parts of fundamental human rights. This study suggests that the weakness in traffic policy and implementation in practice and State's obligation to protect human rights remain as significant barriers for the safety of passengers which further lead to the ignorance of individual rights within the law.en
