  • To Myanmar With Love

    To Myanmar With Love

    Myanmar, the country formerly known as Burma, is in the throes of a historic transition. The military has given up direct rule after more than a half century in power. Parliamentary elections have been held, and the long-imprisoned democracy campaigner, Aung San Suu Kyi, has been sworn in as a member of parliament. She visited Thailand in late May - the first time she has been allowed to travel abroad since 1988 - followed by a visit to several European countries, including Norway to collect the Nobel Peace Prize that was originally awarded to her in 1991. The University of Hong Kong has been lending support to Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Myanmar for years, inside and outside the country.
