The NLD Government from 2016 held a strong commitment to the rebuilding of the rule
of law in Myanmar, and the independence of the judiciary. It’s time to consider where things stand today in the wake of the evidently forced resignation of Chief Justice Htun Htun Oo (appointed in 2011 by President Thein Sein) and the development of training and other law programs by the NLD Government.

Dr Marcus Brand is the Head of Programme for IDEA (Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance) in Myanmar.  He has extensive experience in Myanmar, also with UNDP earlier in his career and has more than 20 years experience in promoting democratic governance, human rights and the rule of law.  

A commentary will be delivered by an academic who wishes to remain anonymous.

Questions and Answers will follow the presentations.

***NOTE: Zoom can work very well, but it poses difficulties for people with a poor internet connection. So, people from Myanmar (or elsewhere) who might have a poor internet connection or low bandwidth should turn off the video mode and listen to the seminar. You may be able to switch on the video from time to time just to see who is speaking, but definitely don’t use the video mode if you wish to speak yourself.  You can also pose questions using the chat function.  The whole seminar will be uploaded later on the AMI website and Facebook page.
