The formation of a new government in Myanmar, led by the National League for Democracy, is a crucially important milestone in the country’s political transformation. This profound change is being matched by similarly far-reaching shifts in Myanmar’s economic, social and cultural landscape. The 2017 Myanmar Update will address these multiple transformations.

The Myanmar Update has been running since 1990. Details of previous conferences and publications are available here:
