ROHINGYA CRISIS RESEARCH

ROHINGYA CRISIS RESEARCH

Release date: July, 2022

The Rohingya Crisis is now in its fifth year with no end in sight. While the international community has supported the displaced Rohingyas in Bangladesh by providing humanitarian assistance, what is needed now is to investigate the short-and long-term implications of the crisis from the host country’s perspective. Also, it is imperative to examine the current political situation, which was caused by the Myanmar military coup in February 2021. It has cast a dark shadow on the possibility of a negotiated repatriation. In this volume, scholars from Bangladesh and Canada have reflected upon the security situation, the pandemic’s impact on the Rohingyas, inter-group conflict, environmental impact and burden sharing aspects, the informal labor situation, NGO intervention for resilience mapping, and diaspora activities. For both academics and policymakers who work in the fields of conflict resolution and peacebuilding, this book will show how not intervening early in a crisis can have long-term consequences.

Myanmar and its Tatmadaw (armed forces) carried out a systemic genocide on Rohingyas since 1980s by initially stripping them off from citizenship. Thus, Rohingyas statelessness is one of the root causes of the conflict.

Consequently, after the last exodus that started on 25 August 2017, nearly 750,000 of them took refuge in Bangladesh and combinedly, 1.3 million of them now live in 34 refugee camps in southern part of the country.
UN and various rights groups considered it the largest humanitarian disaster after the second world war.
With no end in sight to resolve the conflict (in terms of repatriation), host country and various stakeholders are facing numerous challenges while shifting their focus from immediate needs to long-term needs of the Rohingyas.
In light of this, Conflict and Resilience Research Institute, Canada (CRRIC), undertook a research project, and a book is published by Lexington Books that contains findings and policy recommendations.
CRRIC researchers drew on ethnographic research conducted in refugee camps in Bangladesh and archival data to explain the root causes of the Rohingya conflict and highlight peacebuilding challenges and opportunities for various state and non-state stakeholders working towards conflict transformation.
