Yee Htun, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Law School

The Myanmar military's campaign against the Rohingya population is set in a tenuous backdrop of ethnic armed conflict, a stagnant national peace and reconciliation process, and a fledgling democracy led by a now-controversial Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In a special to Duke undergraduates, Yee Htun, a clinical instructor at Harvard Law School with over a decade of experience in international advocacy and a refugee from Myanmar herself, will unpack the multidimensional human rights situation in Myanmar and discuss opportunities forward for both domestic and international actors.
