Democratic parties’ participation in the April 1 by-elections in Burma reflect a partial political opening and the expectation that some of the country’s pressing challenges can be addressed.  This panel will highlight human security issues, taking into account the ways in which men and women may be differently affected, and will consider how the US government and US organizations might be able to play a supportive role.

This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP at http://bit.ly/wMIYKf
