Myanmar After the Coup


Friday, February 19, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


Virtual event, registration required

The February 1st coup launched by Myanmar's military effectively put an end to the country's tentative transition to democracy as civilian political leaders were imprisoned and the results of the 2020 elections annulled. Joining us to discuss these recent events in Myanmar and what they portend for the country's future are Pwint Htun, Non-Residential Myanmar Program Fellow at the Ash Center and Derek Mitchell, president of the National Democratic Institute and former U.S. ambassador to Myanmar. The conversation will be moderated by Tarek Masoud, Professor of Public Policy and Sultan Qaboos bin Said of Oman Professor of International Relations at HKS.
