New Directions, New Challenges

Burma/Myanmar, Laos and North Korea

FOCUS ASIA 8-9 May 2012

The Focus Asia symposium in May 2012 focused on three countries — Burma/Myanmar, Laos and North Korea. Each of these countries in different ways is currently experiencing new directions in its political, economic and social development, developments that have been widely reported in the global media. During the Focus Asia symposium, in addition to accounts of each country by recent visitors, leading international scholars will present and analyse these current developments, and position them in the context of the rapid transformations currently being witnessed in South-East and North-East Asia.
