Active Minds: Myanmar (Burma)
In February of 2021 the democratically elected government of Myanmar, led by Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, was toppled in a military coup that was widely condemned by the international community. Since achieving its independence in 1948, Myanmar’s post-colonial history has often been characterized by military rule and human rights abuses, including reports of the Buddhist majority government targeting the Rohingya, a Muslim minority population. Join Active Minds as we explore the current situation as well as the history of this important Southeast Asian country, formerly known as Burma.
