DPCR Seminar Myanmar’s 1.2.21 Coup: Resistance, Conflict, and Democracy.

  • Date: –12:00
  • Location: Zoom
  • Organiser: Department of Peace and Conflict Research and Uppsala Forum
  • Contact person: Daniel Hedlund
  • Föreläsning

Join us for a seminar to discuss the current situation in Myanmar amid a coup
and popular protest against the coup. ​​​​​​​The seminar is co-hosted with Uppsala Forum.

How do we make sense of the coup and its implications for Myanmar’s path
for democracy and peace? Protest mobilization in Myanmar also follows the
trend in pro-democracy campaigns in its neighbors in Southeast Asia and
elsewhere in response to a wider autocratic shift.

Discussants include:

Ashok Swain (Uppsala University)

Kyungmee Kim (Uppsala University)

Joakim Kruetz (Uppsala University)

Stein Tønnesson (PRIO)

Magda Cardenas (Umeå University).

The seminar will be chaired by Isak Svensson (Uppsala University).
