The Myanmar Coup Faculty and Student Perspectives

On Feb 1, 2021, the democratically elected government of Myanmar was deposed in a military coup. The coup immediately sparked pro-democracy protests from Myanmar’s citizens, and despite international attention, the Tatmadaw has cracked down harshly on protestors, killing over 700 people to date. Overseas communities-including Burmese, Karen, Chin, among others-have worked to support protestors from afar. This panel explores the events leading up to the coup and highlights the response of scholars and activists both locally and internationally.

The panelists include:

Eddy Malesky, Senior Lecturer Australian National University

Jack, Student at Duke and Myanmar citizen

Sarahann Bu, Student at UNC-CH and member of NC Chin diaspora community
