Le coup d'État au Myanmar et ses conséquences : Quelle suite pour la démocratie et la paix ?
On 01 February 2021, the Myanmar military (Tatmadaw) launched a coup on the day that the National League for Democracy (NLD) party was to begin its second parliamentary term. The coup ended the 10 years of experiment with the military-led transition to semi-democratic rule, which had seen the election of the NLD in 2015, vast improvements in freedoms and political participation, a dialogue toward ending 60 years of civil war as well as economic renewal. This roundtable will discuss and reflect on the sources of the failure of the democratic experiment, the deterioration into violence and repression after the coup, and its consequences for democracy and peace.
