ISDP Forum with Mr. Harn Yawnghwe on "Are the Changes in Myanmar Real? - Reforms, Peace and Democracy?"

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 13:55

ISPD FORUM with Mr. Harn Yawnghwe
Executive Director of the Euro-Burma Office

At the end of March 2011, the newly elected President Thein Sein surprised the world. He called for economic reforms, democracy, reconciliation and resolving of the civil war that has plagued the nation since independence, by political means. The international community took him at his word but skeptics remain.

Three and a half years later, what has Thein Sein delivered? Is there now peace in Myanmar? Have the Generals become democrats? Is Myanmar developing? With general elections scheduled for the end of 2015, what can be expected? Will the elections be free and fair? Will Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the democracy icon, be allowed to become President? Will the reforms continue and will democracy become entrenched in Myanmar? Harn Yawnghwe will address these issues
