Tea Circle hosts “The Future of Federalism and Political Decentralization in Myanmar”
November 12, 2021 | 9-11am EST

The military coup in Myanmar prompted a quick shift by major ethnic Burman political actors—including the National Unity Government (NUG)—to adopt language of a “federal democracy” and commit to meaningful federal reform. While political uncertainty and repressive military rule persist, conversations continue about what political changes are necessary to enact meaningful decentralization, but also what complementary processes are needed within Myanmar society to counteract decades of entrenched discrimination and inequality.

Panelists:
David Thang Moe (Asbury Theological Seminary)

Dr Sai Thet Naing Oo (Pyidaungsu Institute)
