The Coup in Myanmar: What Happened and What Happens Next

Inside the Coup in Myanmar

APF Canada President and CEO Stewart Beck joins the Foundation's Program Specialist Julia Nguyen in a discussion about the coup in Myanmar, including why it happened, what it means for the future of democracy in the country, and how it will impact the human rights issue around the Muslim minority Rohingya population.

In Asia Watch and our Dispatch channel, Julia has written about Myanmar both before and after the coup, and has been tracking democracy and rights issues on the ground, with their implications for Canada's foreign policy in the country and broader region.

Taking a deeper dive into the coup, this episode of Asia Watch: Beyond the Headlines focuses why it happened, how, and what comes next.
