Come join us on Thursday, March 7, 2019 to hear from members of the Rohingya Working group as they update us on their research experiences on the Rohingya crisis, and learn about one of the largest instances of ethnic cleansing taking place today.
Since August 2017, Burmese security forces have been carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State forcing over half a million of them to flee to neighboring Bangladesh to escape killings, arson, and other atrocities. This mass migration has resulted in one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time. The Chowdhury Center, in a attempt to understand this, has launched a Rohingya Working Group in which students, researchers, and practitioners are invited to develop ideas and collaborations to further our collective work related to the Rohingya crisis.
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public.
