Clinton Global Initiative 2011 Video: Watch Aung San Suu Kyi Discuss Human Rights

Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma's most prominent opposition leader, is holding a live conference from Burma today with the Clinton Global Initiative.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi has headed Burma's opposition since 1988, and was placed under house arrest after her National League for Democracy party won 82% of parliamentary seats in the 1990 elections.

The Clinton Global Initiative was established by former president Bill Clinton in 2005, and hosts an annual meeting that brings together prominent international figures. This year's meeting focuses on jobs, sustainable employment and the position of girls and women across the world.

Below, watch Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi discuss how members of the Clinton Global Initiative can tackle issues such as human rights and ethnic reconciliation.
