schema:reviewBody""Recognizing that democracy and the NLD cannot survive in Burma without the help of the United States and the international community, the Council-sponsored Independent Task Force on Burma sounds a clarion call for change. In response to the government's recent crackdown on the democratic opposition, the Task Force urges the United Nations to call for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners, and to impose sanctions on Burma, including bans both on new in-vestment in Burma and on the importation of goods produced in Burma. The Task Force report also offers specific recommendations for U.S. policy in four areas: humanitarian assistance; promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law; narcotics control policy; and refugees, migrants, and internally displaced persons." "Led by Mathea Falco, president of Drug Strategies and former assistant secretary of state for international narcotics matters, this bipartisan Task Force comprises members with a wide range of experience in international business, law, government, media, academia, public health, and human rights advocacy, among other areas. Its recommendations are intended to inform U.S. government action as well as to increase U.S. cooperation with other countries, especially in Asia, to bring about a long overdue political, economic, and social transformation of Burma."--BOOK JACKET."
