From Military Rule To Democracy: The Changing Face Of Myanmar

Tracing Myanmar's troubled past and looking towards the future

On 8 November, the people of Burma will go to the polls in an election that is being seen as a step towards full democracy after nearly half a century of military rule. A panel of experts will explore what life is like in Burma, the political and ethical divisions, and what change the election will bring. Included in the panel is Dr Richard Cockett, editor and correspondent at The Economist and Robert Cooper, who worked for the European Union High Representative and served as a special adviser on Burma. This is a rare opportunity for a unique insight on a beautiful, troubled and intriguing country.
