Collaboration for Atrocity Prevention in Myanmar and Beyond

2 Mar 2023

APR2P, along with the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Jakarta, Indonesia, co-hosted a seminar exploring the ways regional and international actors can respond to atrocities in Myanmar. 

Myanmar is Southeast Asia’s most pressing political, security, humanitarian and human rights crisis. In the two years since the attempted coup, thousands of civilians have been detained, tortured and killed in violence that has swept the country. 

The webinar brought together eminent speakers to discuss the situation, including a key note address by Mr Maruki Darusman, who served as the Chair of the Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar, and currently serves as a member of the Special Advisory Council on Myanmar. 

He was joined by Mr George Okoth-Obbo, Assistant Secretary-General and Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General on the Responsibilty to Protect, and the event was moderated by Dr Lina Alexandra, APR2P Research Fellow and the Head of the Department of International Relations at CSIS.

The webinar can be viewed here on the CSIS Indonesia YouTube channel, or from our Webinars page, along with other videos about atrocity prevention in the Asia Pacific.
