Wednesday panel discussion: Political and Economic Changes in Myanmar (Burma)

Sunday, January 31, 2016

Larry Dohrs, Visiting Scholar
in Southeast Asian Studies
The Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College will present a panel discussion about Political and Economic Changes in Myanmar (Burma), on Wednesday, February 3, at 7:00pm in Room 9208 (Quiet Dining Room) at Shoreline Community College.

The public is welcomed to this free event.

Myanmar (Burma) is undergoing significant political and economic reforms.

On November 8, 2015, The National League for Democracy, led by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi (who was under house arrest from 1989 to 2010), won a stunning nationwide election, defeating a military establishment that has ruled Myanmar since 1962.

Yet the military will continue to hold many levers of power, suggesting that a complex dance between entrenched interests and the will of the people is the new reality.

With us to discuss these changes is Larry S. Dohrs, Visiting Scholar in Southeast Asian Studies, Texas Christian University, Chairman, Board of Directors, US Campaign for Burma. For more details go to the GAC website.

Like all GAC event, admission is FREE and open to the public.  There is a small fee for parking on campus during the daytime and Free during the evening.

Shoreline Community College, 16101 Greenwood Ave N, 98133 (campus maps)
