Event Description

Full Description:
The recent escalation in violence in Myanmar’s Rahkhine state has starkly highlighted the continuing humanitarian crisis in Myanmar’s northwest region and the unresolved communal conflict between Arakanese Buddhists and Muslim Rohingyas. The NLD government of Aung San Suu Kyi has been under pressure from the international
community, to respond more effectively to the situation in Rakhine and to stop the atrocities being committed against the Rohingyas by the military. Some have argued that the situation amounts to a genocide. In this Flashpoint event, our expert panel will discuss this crisis and ask, does this situation amount to a genocide? And, given that Myanmar is not a signatory to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, what legal
and policy tools are available to the international community to investigate and to act in response to these claims?

Hear our panel of experts discuss this topical issue

Professor Alex Bellamy, Dr Melissa Curley and Melanie O'Brien
