The University of Tokyo will host an online symposium on Saturday to discuss ways to help Myanmar people living in Japan as the crackdown by the military government on the pro-democracy movement continues in the Southeast Asian country following the February coup.

The forum will propose universities and other academic institutions in Japan accept Myanmar people who are unable to return home as students, faculty staff or researchers so that they can stay in Japan over the long term, according to organizers.
