Burma's Democracy: How Real?
Aung Zaw (panelist), 2013 Journalism Prize Winner and Founder and Editor, The Irrawaddy News Magazine
The opening up of Myanmar (Burma) and the steps undertaken taken toward political reform in that formerly isolated dictatorship have been among Asia's most dramatic and least expected events. But the establishment of full democracy is still on the agenda and faces many challenges. How willing is the current government in Burma to allow a full and free exercise of political rights, including media freedom? A panel of experts, including Aung Zaw, the editor and founder of The Irrawaddy and this year's recipient of the Shorenstein Award for Journalism in Asia, will address that question in discussing "Burma's Democracy: How Real?"
