Oxford Burma Alliance
Created in October 2011, the Oxford Burma Alliance (OBA) is a student-run organisation working to bring Burma issues to Oxford and to join together Burma activists and others with an interest in human rights and education. The OBA aims to provide a platform for discussion of and advocacy for Burma issues to the students of Oxford University and the general public, and to establish sustainable links with students and activists on the Thai-Burma border.
The OBA runs a number of different projects and campaigns aimed at raising awareness about Burma and creating and lasting relationships between the Oxford community and the Thai-Burma border area. Our campaigns currently focus on education, health care, and the on-going conflicts in ethnic areas. We have a number of projects underway aimed at promoting and supporting these issues and regularly host talks and lectures by experts on different Burma-related matters.
