Webinar: “One year on from the military coup in Myanmar, what comes next?”
February 1, 2022 - 03:00-03:30
On 1 February 2021, Myanmar’s Armed Forces, also known as the Tatmadaw, launched a coup seizing power from the democratically elected and incumbent government, the National League for Democracy (NLD). The military takeover occurred just hours before the newly elected parliament was scheduled to convene, dashing hopes for democratic progress in the country. Soldiers and paramilitary police met the nationwide protests that followed with killings, torture, abductions and mutilation of bodies.
Co-organised by the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) and the Australian National University (ANU) Myanmar Research Centre, this event will invite panellists to reflect on the politics, law and current affairs of Myanmar before and after the coup, and what can be expected in the near future.
