Overview

Since Burma’s military regime released Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest, there have been numerous signs that the nation’s rulers may intend to bring about some degree of change. The speaker will explore what possible role Aung San Suu Kyi could play in this process and what new opportunities and risks she may face in coming months.
