The New Burma? Religion, Democracy and the Rohingya
Wednesday, 27 February 2013 | 4 to 6pm | 280A York Lanes| York University

The world has watched for decades, hoping for political reform that would bring freedoms to Burma. While the past two years have brought remarkable political and cultural changes, the hope of freedoms quickly gave way to communal violence targeting Muslims and ethnic conflict. This panel will explore the changes and challenges facing the new Burma, focusing particularly on the plight of the Rohingya.

This event is a part of the Diversity, Rights and Religion series organized by the York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR).
