Lowy Institute Live event: What can the world do about the Myanmar crisis?
When Myanmar’s military seized power on 1 February, it sent the country spiralling into a political and economic crisis. Despite killing hundreds of peaceful protesters and detaining thousands of activists and politicians, the military has been unable to break the civil disobedience movement. It is unable to govern Myanmar, and risks turning the country into a failed state. As the situation deteriorates, what can the world do to help resolve the Myanmar crisis?
 
Join us for a discussion with Scot Marciel, a former US ambassador to Myanmar, Khin Ohmar, a veteran democracy activist from Myanmar, Rizal Sukma, an Indonesian foreign policy expert, and Janelle Saffin, a Labor MP and the founder of the Australia-Myanmar Parliament Group. The discussion will be hosted by Ben Bland, Director of the Southeast Asia Program at the Lowy Institute.
 
Scot Marciel is a Visiting Scholar and Practicioner Fellow at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University. He was the US ambassador to Myanmar from 2016 to 2020, and previously served as US ambassador to Indonesia, US ambassador for ASEAN affairs and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for East Asia and the Pacific at the State Department.
