This month marks 10 years since violence broke out in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, laying the groundwork for a decade of oppression, deprivation, and violence against the Rohingya. The military, confident there would be no consequences for its crimes, went on to carry out more brutal and organized atrocities in 2016 and 2017 with total impunity.
In February 2021, those same generals staged a coup and launched a brutal nationwide crackdown. Panellists will discuss the root causes of the military’s atrocities, the impact of the coup on the Rohingya and other ethnic minorities, and paths for holding perpetrators accountable.
