On February 1, 2021, officers of the Burmese military grabbed power in Myanmar. Ever since, the country’s civil society has been trying  to bring back the country onto its path towards democracy  by forming a Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM). Military and police response has become violent to the extreme. The Tatmadaw’s conflict with different ethnic armed organizations is another factor in the current situation.  Censorship limits the freedom of the press. Covid-19 remains a challenge.

As of March 31, 2021, several embassies have directed their fellow countrymen to leave the country. International relations, always being complex in the context of Myanmar, are seemingly in a state of reengagement.
