Lecture: View from the End – Myanmar, Genocide and the Rohingya

  • Thursday 25th January 2018
  • Avenue Campus, University of Southampton, Southampton SO17 1BF

The annual Human Rights Lecture 2018 examines the genocide of Myanmar’s Muslim ethnic Rohingya within a state crime framework. It also argues for the importance of defining the persecution of the Rohingya as genocide and not ‘ethnic cleansing’. The talk will be based on two research fieldtrips, the first to Rakhine state in 2014-15 and the second to the vast and newly-formed Rohingya camps in southern Bangladesh in October/November 2017. The lecture will be held from 18.00-19.00
