Myanmar’s transition and the UN's role

Myanmar has over the past few years gone through dramatic changes towards a more democratic state, though serious challenges remain. After elections in 2010 that were considered flawed and bi-elections in 2012 during which Aung San Suu Kyi was sworn into the parliament, reasonably fair and transparent elections were held in November 2015 granting the opposition ‘National League for Democracy’ as the winner. As the new government is taking over power in Myanmar, leaving the past autocratic government behind, the challenge of ensuring an inclusive transition and road ahead sets in. To what extent will the new government secure that the no one is left behind in this transition? What is the role of the UN and CSO in supporting the new government and ensuring inclusiveness?”
The lecture will be given by Caroline Åberg, who currently works as Communications and Liaison Specialist and Sweden Representative at the United Nations Development programme (UNDP). During several years ms. Åberg worked abroad, in Argentina, Indonesia and Myanmar as well at the UN headquarters in New York.
