In the third episode of the “Burma votes 2010” vodcast and podcast series I interview Trevor Wilson who is a former Australian Ambassador to Burma and a Visiting Fellow in the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific. Trevor has recently returned from Burma where he watched the elections up-close. In this interview he shares his thoughts on Aung San Suu Kyi’s release and what her relative freedom might mean for Burmese politics. Trevor speaks at some length about Aung San Suu Kyi’s capacity to deal with the ethnic minority groups that are probably so key to the country’s future. This episode also includes some remarks about Burma that Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim made while he was on the ANU campus earlier in the week.
