Rohingya Refugees

Sarah Best

21st November 2017

It was widely celebrated around the world when Nobel Peace prize winner and human rights activist, Aung San Suu Kyi was elected the leader of Myanmar in 2015. ‘The Lady’ as she is sometimes known was a beacon of hope for many after experiencing decades of oppression and civil war in the country.

However, it is silence on the Rohingya refugee crisis that has led to some to argue that Aung San Suu Kyi should be stripped of her peace prize.

The following video explores the plight of the refugees and Aung San Suu Kyi’s response. This could act as a good case study within the Global Development unit as well as for demography (migration) and as an example of a state crime (human right abuses).
