Myanmar Post-Election Conference


On November 8, 2015, Aung San Suu Kyi’s opposition party won a landslide victory in the first free general election since the beginning of democratization in 2011. “Prospects for Peace” will focus on the implications of the election for Myanmar’s ethnic minorities, the regional migration and refugees crisis, Myanmar’s relations with its Asia-Pacific neighbours, and the future of the country’s nascent democracy.
