Speaker
U Kyaw Win


Join us at Boulder Public Library for a conversation with U Kyaw Win about SE Asia Today, with a special focus on Burma.

U Kyaw Win was an early expatriate who publicly criticized Burma’s military junta in the 1960s. Publisher of The Burma Bulletin and a founder of the Committee for Restoration of Democracy in Burma, he lobbied the U.S. Congress and government officials around the world for suspension of financial support for the junta. He was exiled for 48 years.

He retired as a professor of psychology and a counselor from a California college after 30 years. He has recently published My Conscience: An Exile’s Memoir of Burma. Here is a review.
