VUBToday: VUB-rector Caroline Pauwels writes open letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

On the occasion of the International Day of Human Rights on 10 December, Caroline Pauwels, rector of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, wrote a letter to Aung San Suu Kyi, Advisor to the State of Myanmar. In 1994 the VUB awarded Aung San Suu Kyi with an honorary doctorate for her role in the opposition against the military dictatorship in Myanmar. In 2016 she became head of the government in Myanmar. Since 2017, she has been in disrepute because of her so-called indifference to ethnic cleansing carried out by the army on Rohingya. read more on VUB Today
