Event Description:
The Rohingya Exodus: Protracted Conflict, Refuge, and Global-Local Peacebuilding Avenues

A Brown Bag Lecture with Dr. Kawser Ahmed, Peace and Conflict Studies (University of Manitoba, 2017) and Helal Mohiuddin, PhD, Conflict and Resilience Research Institute, Canada

Since August 2017, Myanmar security forces’ clearance operations in the Rakhaine State of Myanmar have resulted in the mass exodus of ethnic Rohingyas to neighbouring Bangladesh. Although the systematic persecution of the Rohingyas began in the 1970s by banning citizenship and denying civic and human rights, the worst crackdown, which international observers as well as the UN termed a textbook ethnic cleansing, resumed from August 2017 in retaliation to an alleged Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) attack of a Myanmar paramilitary station. Currently nearly one million Rohingyas are living in camps in southern Bangladesh. In light of this, the presentation will address the following research questions:

- Who are the Rohingyas? What are the main issues related to their identity and why did they end up stateless?
- What are the impacts of the mass displacement of the Rohingyas in general and women and children in particular?
- What are the regional and global security ramifications of the displacement?
- What are the roles of international communities as well as government and non-government organizations in managing the conflict?

The Brown Bag Lecture Series is held on designated Fridays during the regular sessions from 12:00 pm - 12:55 pm in the Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace & Justice at St. Paul's College, University of Manitoba. Room: Boardroom, 252 St. Paul's College.

The lectures are free and open to the public. Lectures are approximately 30 minutes in length, followed by a discussion period. Don't forget to bring your bagged lunch!
