Online Symposium: Asia Justice Coalition and Opinio Juris (2021)

From 27 September - 1 October 2021, Asia Justice Coalition and Opinio Juris curated a virtual symposium titled: ‘The Current Crisis in Myanmar: Legal Implications’. This joint event is a follow-up to its 2020 online symposium and aimed to mark the eight months since the illegal coup by the Myanmar military on 1 February 2021. Myanmar faces multiple crises at the moment – mass atrocities being committed by the security forces on a daily basis, a devastating Covid-19 pandemic, ongoing armed conflicts in various parts of Myanmar, the continued marginalization of many minorities, and proceedings at international courts related to the Rohingya.
