Recent news from Myanmar is heart-breaking. It seemed 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 protestors, as well an 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 the generals and identify signs of hope for this war-torn land, including the role of university graduates. The event will begin with a 15-20 minute seminar followed by interactive questions and answers.
Prof Mabey is emeritus professor at Middlesex University Business School. As chartered 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 in a small bible college on the edge of Yangon. His book, Whispers of Hope (Penguin 2021), on Myanmar is to be published by Penguin Random House in July.
