A multiweek visit to the United States by Burmese lawmakers kicked off with a two-day intensive workshop on constitutional reform conducted by David S. Law, JD, PhD, professor of law and of political science, in Arts & Sciences, at Washington University in St. Louis.
The parliament of Burma (officially Myanmar) is expected to take up significant reforms of its 2008 constitution in 2014. An article carried by The Associated Press and The Washington Post identified the workshop participants as key players in Burma’s constitutional reform process. The participants were selected by the U.S. State Department and included members of parliament from the ruling Unity and Democracy Party, the Rakhine Nationalities Development Party, the All Nationals’ Democracy Party, and the National League for Democracy opposition party led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
