On February 1, 2021, a coup d’état in Myanmar ousted the nation’s democratically elected leaders and returned the state to full military rule. What led to this point? What happens next? Is this coup a sign that democracy is in retreat around the world?
We’re joined by Ambassador Derek Mitchell, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar from 2012-2016, America’s first ambassador to the country in 22 years. Ambassador Mitchell is currently the President of the National Democratic Institute.
