6:00 PM Talk: From Dictatorship to Democracy? Myanmar’s Uneasy Transition San Diego World Affairs Council warmly welcomes Dr. Richard A. Nuccio's talk: "From Dictatorship to Democracy? Myanmar’s Uneasy Transition".

After nearly fifty years of military rule, Myanmar/Burma began a guided transition toward a more open economic and political system in the mid-2000s. Led by the country’s existing military leaders, the transition was based on a new constitution drafted by the military intended to maintain their influence and limit the power of the main opposition party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Daw Aung Sang Suu Kyi.

Early signs that the military’s plans would go awry were a sweep by the NLD of the 2012 by-elections that led in turn to a nationwide victory in largely fair elections in 2015.

As in many countries under authoritarian rule, deep regional, national, ethnic and religious divisions in Myanmar were unleashed by the easing of political repression. Myanmar’s new democratically elected leaders have found themselves confronted by a continuation of decades-old civil wars and new insurgencies based on Buddhist/Muslim divisions long simmering beneath the surface.

• How did international sanctions against Myanmar, some of the strictest in the world, encourage the 2010 guided transition in Myanmar?
• How will relatively poor countries like Myanmar fare in the coming disorder of the disintegration of the post-WWII international order?
• What is the future of liberal democratic systems in Asia?

About our Speaker: Dr. Richard A. Nuccio

Richard A. Nuccio is the Interim Program Manager of the UK’s Department of International Development (DfID) and European Union (EU)"funded Support Hluttaw Work for Effective Budget Oversight (SHWEBO) project to strengthen the oversight capacity of Myanmar’s legislative branch at the Union, state, and region levels. Previously, Dr. Nuccio served as the National Democratic Institute’s (NDI) resident senior country director for Myanmar from March 2013 until June 2016. In this capacity, he developed NDI’s technical support program to Myanmar’s parliament (Hluttaw) and oversaw all NDI programming in Myanmar, including its efforts to support independent observation of the 2015 national elections. Before arriving in Myanmar, Dr. Nuccio served as NDI’s resident senior country director in South Sudan from 2011 until 2012. As country director, he oversaw the implementation of civic engagement program activities under a five-year, $61 million US Agency for International Development (USAID) grant and provided leadership to a team of nine international and 39 national staff.

7:00 PM  The Voices of Peace Concert The Voices of Peace Concert brings together the Jerusalem Youth Chorus and Voices of Our City Choir to celebrate an evening of Peace and Music and is a fundraiser for both organizations.

The Jerusalem Youth Chorus
A choral and dialogue program for Israeli and Palestinian high school students in Jerusalem. Our mission is to provide a space for these young people from East and West Jerusalem to grow together in song and dialogue. Through the co-creation of music and the sharing of stories, the chorus seeks to empower youth in Jerusalem to become leaders in their communities and inspire singers and listeners around the world to work for peace.

Voices of Our City Choir
Helping San Diego's unsheltered neighbors reconnect with hope and possibility through the healing power of music. Choir members are given opportunities to sing and perform professional gigs all over San Diego. The sense of purpose and joy that music and connection brings to our choir members helps them to make changes in their life that they themselves didn't feel possible previously.
