Myanmar Conference 2020

The Myanmar Conference 2020, which is jointly organized by the Linden-Museum Stuttgart and the Myanmar Institute e. V., will take place at the Linden-Museum from May 21 to 24, 2020.

The conference will focus on the topic of "Minorities in Myanmar" and invites in particular to presentations that focus on ethnic, religious, political, cultural or social minorities (e.g. Kachins, Muslims, punks, communists, LGBTIQ, artist communities etc.), their situation, identities, traditions, and practices. The conference will examine strategies and policies and related issues, such as how Myanmar accommodates (or does not accommodate) pluralism. Peace processes and NCA negotiations, inter-community conflicts and dynamics, minorities in the education system and its curricula, or the controversial "laws to protect race and religion" will be examined in more detail.
