Burma is going through its most challenging time as reforms are taking place while the 2015 Election is only a year away. Through the country seems to be changing, the people's livelihood is no better and they are as always struggling for their daily survival. There are paramount concerns with slow pace of reforms and peace process, wide-spread land-grabs, continued human rights abuses, cronyism, uncertainty with amending the Sham constitution and the ultimate outcome of the 2015 elections.

 

Though Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is pushing hard for the constitution amendment, it is going no where and we may all end up legalizing the military rule further as the constitution is designed to do and the international community might just give up to pressure further after 2015 elections. Therefore, now is the most crucial time for Burma and her people and come join us to learn about how you can help for the better there.


Professor / Leading Expert on Democracy Studies Larry Diamond  - “A Prospect for Democracy in Burma”
