Minn Tent Bo "How Democracies Die"

Minn Tent Bo "How Democracies Die"

Minn Tent Bo is a Burmese human rights consultant, author, and independent election observer who provides political, conflict and legal analysis, programme support and strategic advice to local civil society organisations, international non-governmental organisations and multilateral organisations.

He has been on Election Expert Missions to various countries in his function as a programme officer for the Carter Center and as an independent advisor to the EU.

Minn is a consultant to Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch and an educator against Gender Based Violence.

Minn lives in London since 2018 and is a freshly baked dad with a wonderful daughter of eight months old.

Why he got into the field of human rights in the first place, the reasons for his strong disposition for democracy we will talk about today.

And who better to give us an analysis of the current situation in Myanmar and to talk about the vulnerability of something which is taken for granted by the ones who have it, yearned and fought for by the ones who don’t: democracy.
