ASEAN initiatives may have been lauded as beyond expectation. But beyond mere political symbolism and commitments, they have not had a significant impact on the situation that has afflicted the Myanmar people. As the lack of progress on ASEAN’s effort continues, more news of military crackdowns on ethnic minorities has been reported in numerous regions in Myanmar. This calls into question whether ASEAN can take the role of a peacemaker in dealing with the Myanmar crisis.

As part of its Myanmar Initiative, CSIS Indonesia is delighted to host the webinar with U Bo Hla Tint, Ambassador to the ASEAN of the National Unity Government (NUG), Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
