Ethnic Cleansing or Playing the Long Game? Interpreting the Rohingya Crisis in Myanmar

February 5, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

featuring Peter A. Coclanis, Albert R. Newsome Distinguished Professor of History and Director, Global Research Institute

The humanitarian crisis involving the Muslim Rohingya people in western Myanmar has captured the attention of the world in recent years. Although we now know a good deal about the scale and scope of the crisis, explaining it remains problematic because of tight controls on information in Myanmar and because the country’s complex history is still  little known in the West. In this talk Dr. Coclanis shall examine the present state of the crisis, untangle its roots, explain how and why it came about, and the likely road ahead.
