Human Rights in Myanmar

Dr. Yangehee Lee, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar and Georgetown alumna, participated in a roundtable discussion on the worsening crisis in Rakhine state, the ongoing conflict in Kachin state and northern Shan state, and the importance of women’s participation in peace processes—something still largely absent in Myanmar. Earlier this month, Dr. Lee testified to the United Nations Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee about human rights in Myanmar.
