Last February, the Burmese army launched a coup and began reversing a decade of democratic and economic progress. In March 2021, USIP organized the Myanmar Study Group in response to the country’s evolving crisis. On the one-year anniversary of the military’s coup, on February 1, the Myanmar Study Group released its final report and USIP hosted a discussion on the study group’s findings and recommendations on topics such as the Burmese army, Myanmar’s economy, ethnic armed organizations, end state scenarios, humanitarian assistance, international actors and U.S. government policy alternatives.Panelists
