The seminar update on "the Rakhine conflict and ‘Rohingya’ issues"
A series of issues have been raised including the ongoing humanitarian crisis, the inquiry commissions, citizenship issues, and solution.
In the last few months, UN agencies, Nobel Peace Prize laureates and even the Pope have all condemned violence against the Rohingya. Accusations of state crimes, crimes against humanity and even genocide have been common. Three Investigation Commissions have been convened by the government, military and policy respectively, and former UN Secretary-General Mr Kofi Annan has been appointed to lead one. This update will examine what has happened, the current situation and try to begin to understand why is it happening … and consider where next, taking account of all perspectives.
Dr Anthony Ware, Senior Lecturer in International and Community Development from Deakin University will present “An update on the Rakhine conflict and Rohingya’ issues”
Also providing discussion will be:
Dr Costas Laoutides, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, Deakin University, and co-author with Anthony of “Myanmar’s ‘Rohingya’ Conflict”
Mr Ronan Lee, PhD candidate (Deakin University),
Mr Habiburahman,(well known as Habib) Spokesperson and founder of Australian Burmese Rohingya Organization (ABRO), Habib is co-author of Nous, les Innommables – Un tabou birman.
