Myanmar: Regressed, Stalled or Moving Forward?

October 22, 2014 • 3:00 – 5:00 pm EDT

Myanmar is in the third year of a historic transition. There is active debate in Washington whether the reforms have regressed, stalled, or progressed.  ​Between August 17 and 22, 2014, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) organized a delegation to examine the status of the Myanmar transition in three key dimensions: health and development; political reform and governance; and conflict resolution with the country’s minority groups. 
On October 22 from 3:00PM to 5:00PM we will gather at CSIS for the release of the delegation's report, Myanmar: Regressed, Stalled, or Moving Forward? The session will feature reflections by delegation members, a keynote from a senior administration official, and panel discussions on electoral preparations and critical health challenges. Refreshments will be provided.
