Mizoram

Mizoram (mĬzôr´əm), state (2001 provisional pop. 891,058), c.8,000 sq mi (20,720 sq km), NE India, in the Mizo Hills, bordered on the east and south by Myanmar, on the west by Bangladesh and Tripura, on the northeast by Manipur, and on the north by Assam. The capital is Aizawl. The Mizos, the main ethnic group, are closely related to the Chins of Myanmar. More than 80% of the population is Christian. Mizoram is governed by a chief minister and a cabinet responsible to a unicameral elected legislature and by a governor appointed by the president of India.

Once part of Assam state, Mizoram became a union territory in 1972 and a state in 1986. Secessionist factions have been active in Mizoram; before the creation of Bangladesh, India accused Pakistan of aiding secessionist movements in the area. The Mizo rebellion was officially ended by negotiated settlement in 1985. Smaller ethnic groups have complained of domination by the Mizos, which has fueled armed anti-Mizo movements in the state.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
