Since late August more than half a million Rohingya Muslims have left their homes in western Myanmar, in what the UN describes as “a textbook case of ethnic cleansing”.
The panel members have all undertaken extensive research on the ground in western Myanmar, and will explore what factors have motivated the violence, and why there appears to be mass support among the Myanmar public for the military’s campaign against the Rohingya.

PANELISTS:
FRANCIS WADE
Journalist and author of “Myanmar’s Enemy Within: Buddhist Violence And the Making Of A Muslim ‘Other’”
KYAW HSAN HLAING
Founder and Executive Director of the Peace and Development Initiative (Kintha) in Rakhine State, Burma.
MOHAMMAD MUSTAK ARIF
Founder of the Rohingya Society of Greater Nashua (RSGN).
MODERATOR:
KATE CRONIN-FURMAN
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, International Security Program at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center.

Co-sponsored by Asia Center, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and Lakshmi Mittal South Asia Institute.
