When Aung San Suu Kyi became State Counsellor and Foreign Minister, the hopes for peaceful transition to democracy in Myanmar were running high in spite of the harsh international criticism over the government’s inaction to the military’s genocide of the Rohingya people. Since 2021, however, she is once again become enemy of the state – found guilty of alleged subversion and now awaiting another trial that could send her to prison for the rest of her life. So, what is going on right now in Myanmar? Is the country on the brink of a civil war? What are the prospects for the restoration of democratic rule?

Join us for a conversation with writer and activist Dr. Ma Thida. A former Amnesty International prisoner of conscience, Dr. Thida is now a visiting scholar-in-residence at Yale University. She will shed light on the current dilemmas of Myanmar and address the question of its future, in both regional and global contexts.
