Panel discussion

Myanmar between exile and resistance

Survival strategies and forms of protest under the military dictatorship

Since the military coup in Myanmar on February 1st 2021 the junta has violently suppressed civil and armed resistance and is steering their own country towards a humanitarian disaster.
Tens of thousands have fled the country, others have stayed and are still peacefully resisting the military regime by using creative means of protest. At the same time, people in exile are struggling to keep connected and organize international solidarity.

How is resistance organized in exile and maintains connections to Myanmar? What is the relationship between armed and civil resistance, and how is protest expressed in the digital sphere? What role do gendered and ethnic markers play in this regard? Panel discussion is in English.
