Great Decisions In Foreign Policy

The Generals and the Democrat: Myanmar In Transiti

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Controlled by a military junta, the nation of Burma, or Myanmar, has long been isolated as an international pariah state. But a flicker of hope for many Burmese has been Aung San Suu Kyi, who's spent decades defying military leaders in her quest for democracy. Now, the generals have started to implement a series of democratic and economic reforms - which the US and other Western powers have welcomed overwhelmingly. But are Myanmar's military leaders serious about reform? And is Aung San Suu Kyi the one to lead Burma through what could be a rocky transition from international outcast to Asian "tiger?"
