Human Rights in Today’s Burma/Myanmar
Debate with Burmese Human Rights Activists
You are kindly invited to an informal debate with representatives of prominent Burmese human rights organizations.
After the parliamentary elections in 2015 a new government led by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s political party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), is promoting the country’s transition to democracy. Political changes, however, have yet to meet the expectations of the Burmese people and the international community.
How is today’s human rights situation in Burma? Are there still any political prisoners? Has the international community changed its expectation after the elections? Have the human rights advocacy groups accomplished their work? Has the state of human rights in ethnic areas been improved?
Please join us with a panel of five experts on this issue.
Aung Myo Min
Assistance Association for Political Prisoners – Burma (AAPP)
Forum for Democracy in Burma
Han Min Soe
Network for Human Rights Documentation – Burma (ND-Burma)
Aue Mon Nai
Human Rights Foundation of Monland
There will also be representatives of the Burma Center Prague and the CEELI Institute, two Czech organizations providing legal trainings to Burmese independent lawyers.
Venue: Villa Gröbovka
(Havlíčkovy sady 58, Praha 2)
Date: Wednesday, 26 April 2017 from 6:00 PM
The event will be held in English.
