Facing discrimination and violence in Myanmar over several decades, the Rohingyas have been labelled as 'the most persecuted people on earth’. But resilience has led members of the stateless community to carve out new lives in different parts of the world, including Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. Many of them fled Myanmar as children. Some have been granted citizenship, asylum, and refugee status while others live in the shadows with no legal status or protection. Some have ended in prisons or perished during the journey.
The two-day international conference titled “Connecting the Rohingya Diaspora: Highlighting the Global Displacement” to be held in August 25-26, 2020 aims:
-To bring the Rohingya diaspora community living around the world together to learn about their journey of resilience.
-To discuss with international civil society and government representatives on how to push together for accountability and justice for the Rohingya people in Myanmar and better social inclusion in the host countries.
