Families like this one are still fleeing Burma, despite the recent reforms.

Jan. 17, 2012

The U.S. and the European Union have responded positively to the latest reforms by Burma’s military junta. The U.S. has said it will restore full diplomatic relations; there's also talk of potentially lifting sanctions. Maureen Aung-Thwin, director of the Burma Project at the Open Society Foundation, tells us what this may mean for the country. Also, Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the charismatic new leader of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, is only 40 years old. Worldview talks to him about opportunities and challenges, both political and spiritual, in Ukraine.
