Friday, September 9, 2022, 3:30PM – 5:00PM

Join us for the book launch of “Winning by Process: The State and Neutralization of Ethnic Minorities in Myanmar” (Cornell University Press, 2022) co-authored by Jacques Bertrand, Alexandre Pelletier, and Ardeth Maung Thawnghmung.

Winning by Process asks why the peace process stalled in the decade from 2011 to 2021 despite a liberalizing regime, a national ceasefire agreement, and a multilateral peace dialogue between the state and ethnic minorities.

PLEASE NOTE: This event will be conducted in a hybrid format with limited in-person attendance and live broadcast via Zoom webinar.
