NEWS RAEL PhD student Samira Siddique part of new Working Group on the Rohingya Crisis
Since August 2017, Burmese security forces have been carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State forcing over half a million of them to flee to neighboring Bangladesh to escape killings, arson, and other atrocities. This mass migration has resulted in one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time. The Chowdhury Center, in a attempt to understand this, has launched a Rohingya crisis working group in which students, researchers, and practitioners are invited to develop ideas and collaborations to further our collective work related to the Rohingya crisis. Samira Siddique is playing a central role in this working group.
