The Rohingya Crisis

October 15, 2017

Since late August 2017, over 530,000 Rohingya Muslims have been forcibly displaced from Myanmar into Bangladesh. I’ve been quite busy trying to improve public and policymakers’ understanding of the causes of the violence and possibly policies to address it. I wrote a long piece for New Mandala explaining why the exodus is not simply produced by land-grabs but reflects a very complex political economy context; this has subsequently been republished by Bangladesh’s Daily Star. I also provided private advice to the Foreign Office and gave evidence to the Foreign Affairs Committee – you can watch that here or read the testimony here.
