The theme of this year’s celebration of International Human Rights Day is inclusion and the right to participate in public life. Inclusion and participation – guaranteed in particular by the rights to freedom of expression and opinion, freedom of assembly and association and the right to take part in elections, in public life and decision-making – are key themes in ERT’s work. In many of its projects, ERT has highlighted the connection between discrimination and the lack of effective participation in public life.

The discussion will focus on the present crisis faced by Rohingya in Burma, and future prospects for this stateless community in the country. The panellists will look at this issue in the context of a Burma that is haltingly moving towards democracy but still unable to move beyond the long shadow of its authoritarian regime.
