How, in the run-up to Myanmar’s 2020 General Election, is the country addressing this wide spectrum of challenges? How are these challenges perceived and dealt with by urban and local communities, covered by local media, and discussed during the political campaign? ​Featuring lectures, meetings with media professionals, civil society organizations and political activists, and site visits, this two-week faculty development seminar will offer participants a unique opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in a country which now appears frequently in international news headlines.
