Myanmar expert

2010-03-19

With Myanmar security forces continuing to fire automatic weapons into a sea of pro-democracy protesters including Burmese monks, Queen’s Political Studies professor Bruce Gilley is available to discuss the significance of the protests in the fight for democracy in Myanmar.
“A repression of the movement would force ASEAN to consider the first sanctions against a member-state, while a successful movement would energize democratization throughout Asia,” says Gilley.
Bruce Gilley is an expert on the politics of China and Asia, and his academic work focuses on democracy, legitimacy, comparative development, and global politics. He has consulted widely with governments in Canada, the United States, and Europe on policies toward China and its democratization.
