Two months since the 1 February 2021 coup in Myanmar, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) continues to be criticised for failing to hold the Myanmar military accountable, stop the use of violence by the junta against protesters and restore democracy in Myanmar.

At least 536 death and 2,729 arbitrary detentions have been recorded as of 1 April 2021, according to Assistance Association for Political Prisoners. Among them are women and children.

How should civil society push for ASEAN to meaningfully respond to the Myanmar coup? What lessons can we learn from other regional mechanisms?

Join us in One Vision, Different Responses: Public Dialogue on ASEAN Responses to Myanmar.

The public dialogue aims to:

  • Launch FORUM-ASIA’s report – ‘One Vision, Different Responses: Analysis of ASEAN Member States’ Responses to the Myanmar Coup and Recommendations’ ;
  • Compare ASEAN’s responses and challenges with the situation on the ground, showing people-people solidarity and reflecting on other regional mechanisms on suspension of membership mechanisms;
  • Build pressure from public and civil society in ASEAN to push their governments immediately and meaningfully respond to Myanmar’s coup.


  • Khin Ohmar, Progressive Voice
  • Tun Khin, Burmese Rohingya Organisation, United Kingdom
  • Tom Andrews, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Myanmar
  • Naw Hser Hser, Women’s League of Burma (WLB)

Moderated by Rachel Arinii Judhistari, FORUM-ASIA.
