Moderator: Mr. Nile Bowie

Myanmar is currently experiencing a slow and complicated transformation towards becoming a democracy, but at the same time recent developments have been a cause of international concern: The inter-religious and inter-ethnic violence in some parts of the country has contributed to the flight of Rohingjas who have become a refugee problem for neighbouring countries as well. This presentation will focus on one aspect of the problem, which is the rise of ethno-religious communitarian politics in Myanmar and the role - both positive and negative - that can be played by the Buddhist leaders of the country. It will also assess the impact of the Rohingja crisis on Myanamar and the countries close to it.
