CCSI, Social Justice Initiatives and the Human Rights Institute co-sponsored a discussion with Laura Eshbach, Attorney and Land Tenure Specialist with Landesa.

After five decades of military rule and civil conflict, Myanmar is attempting to transition to democracy and peace. At the center of reforms, two issues loom large: human rights and land rights. Learn more about how these two issues are playing out from an international development practitioner.
