For those of you not fortunate enough to get to Canberra for the 2015 Myanmar/Burma Update, we’ve got the next best thing.
You can listen to seven of the eight conference sessions in the playlist above.
Recordings cover the keynote address by Speaker of Myanmar’s Upper House, HE U Khin Aung Myint, the political update by Mary Callaghan, the economics update, two panels on borderland conflicts and the peace process, communal and sectarian violence in Rakhine State (featuring testimony from long-time Rohingya politician U Kyaw Min), and a wrap up on the many other forms of conflict in the country.
You can also listen to tracks individually at our Soundcloud profile: https://soundcloud.com/newmandala
And for more details on each speaker make sure to check out the downloadable program at the conference website: http://bit.ly/MyanmarUpdate
We hope you enjoy all the analysis and anecdote from this key conference!
UPDATE Wednesday 17 June, 8pm
Unfortunately the original recording of the Communal violence panel was corrupted and we have not been able to salvage it. We have, however, managed to secure a copy of U Kyaw Min’s address on the Rohingya to the conference, which has been added to the playlist above. Happy listening.
