“AVERTING CATASTROPHE IN MYANMAR:COVID19, ECONOMIC COLLAPSE AND AN EFFECTIVE INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE”

This event explores practical responses to the humanitarian catastrophe of post-coup Myanmar. It draws the attention of the international

community to health system collapse, economic failure, a mounting refugee crisis and an absence of political solutions as a consequence

of the attempted coup of 1 February 2021. COVID and economic failure imperil Myanmar’s neighbors, and the coup presents an acute

crisis for ASEAN. Witnesses will describe the current situation. Panelists will offer practical options for an effective international response.
