The Situation in Myanmar

You’ve read the headlines about Myanmar, but have you heard for instance, what the parallels are between the US events of Jan 6th and Myanmar’s current military coup?  What was the internet’s role in the military’s oppression of civilians?  And how the law has played into, and been contorted by, Myanmar’s junta?

Our Assistant Director Jess Peake sat down for a candid conversation with Pwint Htun of the Myanmar Program at the Harvard Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation.  Pwint’s insights paint a vivid picture of the internal displacement, the pervasive terrors of the military’s lawless behavior, and why constitutional law will be a cornerstone in rebuilding Myanmar from the ground up.
