He was imprisoned in July 1994 by the military regime for peacefully criticising it. Amnesty International considered him a prisoner of conscience, and his case was one of only two in which UNESCO issued a public appeal for a political prisoner.

Dr. Khin Zaw Win was one of more than 200 political prisoners released from jail in Myanmar on July 6th, 2005. Since then, Khin Zaw Win is active in policy advocacy and capacity building concerning communal issues, nationalism and international relations as the Director of the Tampadipa Institute, and as a Senior Research Fellow at the Myanmar Institute for Strategic and International Studies.
