Two Years After the Myanmar Coup: Regional Perspectives on Human Security
On February 1, 2021, the Myanmar military—known as the Tatmadaw—orchestrated a coup d’état that plunged the country into an economic and political crisis. Since the coup, Myanmar’s economy has shrunk by more than fifteen-percent, more civilians than ever-before have been internally displaced or become refugees, and human security continues to be under threat. In recognition of the 2nd anniversary of the coup, the Graduate Program on Human Security and the Research Center for Sustainable Peace at UTokyo will host a panel of experts from different countries within the Indo-Pacific to discuss the prolonged impact of the coup on Myanmar and the regional stability of surrounding countries. Invited experts will provide remarks, followed by a panel discussion. This event is co-sponsored by the Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies.
Speakers: Scot Marciel, Kasit Piromya, Adelina Kamal, Gautam Mukhopadhaya, Thomas Daniel, Moe Zaw Oo, Zin Mar Aung,Teppei Kasai, Yasunobu Sato
