Recent news from Myanmar is heartbreaking. It seemed that the country was inching towards a more democratic regime, but since February the full force of the military junta has cracked down again on defenceless protesters as well as within the education system, increasingly cutting students off from international discourse.
During this Third-Party Webinar hosted by the Christian Academic Network in the UK on Friday, 2 July 2021 at 1700 GMT/UTC, Prof. Chris Mabey will probe the pathology of Myanmar’s army generals and will identify signs of hope for this war-torn land, including the role of university graduates. The event will begin with a message lasting 15 to 20 minutes, followed by interactive questions and answers.
Prof. Mabey is emeritus professor at Middlesex University Business School. A licensed psychologist, he has researched and written about leadership for a number of years. He has had a close association with Myanmar since marrying into a Burmese family in 1973. For the last decade, he and his wife have taught at a small Bible college on the edge of Yangon. His book on Myanmar, Whispers of Hope, is to be published by Penguin Random House in July.
