Aung San Suu Kyi to Hit the Think Tank Circuit

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the Asia Society will be hosting an event next week with Myanmar's opposition politician Aung San Suu Kyi.  Although now sold out, one can still watch a live webcast.  Asia Society will present her with its Global Vision Award.

As Think Tank Watch noted earlier, Aung San Suu Kyi will also be receiving the Global Citizens Award in New York City from the Atlantic Council.

Aung San Suu Kyi will also be giving a speech before the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) where she will be receiving their 2012 Democracy Award.

Here is more on her first visit to the US in more than 20 years.

In late 2011, Aung San Suu Kyi briefed the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) by video about  political reform in Myanmar.
