Mass Violence on the Rohingya People – Nov 20, 2017

The Rohingya People:
Mass Violence in Myanmar

Since late August more than half a million people belonging to a minority group have left their homes in western Myanmar, (Burma) in what the UN describes as “a textbook case of ethnic cleansing”.

The panel members have all undertaken extensive research on the ground in western Myanmar, and will explore what factors have motivated the violence, and why there appears to be mass support among the Myanmar public for the military’s campaign against the Rohingya.
