FIS The Silent Genocide: Rohingya Muslims & The Crisis in Myanmar
Tuesday November 28, 2017
5:30 PM – 7:00 PM
Despite their multigenerational history within Myanmar and centuries of coexistence with the Burman majority, violent conflict between Rakhine Buddhists and Muslim Rohingya erupted in 2012 and has persisted. The humanitarian crisis has left hundreds dead and roughly 140,000 Rohingya internally displaced in refugee camps, and cast a pall on Myanmar’s peaceful democratic transition. To engage the Tufts community on this important world crisis, the Fletcher Islamic Society is sponsoring a panel discussion to address the the multidimensional nature of the Rohingya Genocide, including religious conflict, human security, migration, refugee crisis, and relief efforts. Join panelists Charles Carstens of Harvard University, Roksana Jahan of the Tufts Friedman School, and Ken MacLean, Professor at Clark University.
