Reports

The Dark Side of Transition: Violence Against Muslims in Myanmar. Washington: International Crisis Group, 2013.

Purpose: Report on the anti-Muslim violence. 

Content: "Following the outbreak of deadly intercommunal clashes in Rakhine State in 2012, anti-Muslim violence has spread to other parts of Myanmar. The depth of anti-Muslim sentiment in the country, and the inadequate response of the security forces, mean that further clashes are likely. Unless there is an effective government response and change in societal attitudes, violence could spread, impacting on Myanmar’s transition as well as its standing in the region and beyond." [Author]

“'All You Can Do is Pray:' Crimes Against Humanity and Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Burma’s Arakan State." New York: Human Rights Watch, 2013.

Purpose: Report on Crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Burma’s Arakan State.

Content: This report describes the role of the Burmese government and local authorities in the forcible displacement of more than 125,000 Rohingya and other Muslims and the ongoing humanitarian crisis. Burmese officials, community leaders, and Buddhist monks organized and encouraged ethnic Arakanese backed by state security forces to conduct coordinated attacks on Muslim neighborhoods and villages in October 2012 to terrorize and forcibly relocate the population. The tens of thousands of displaced have been denied access to humanitarian aid and been unable to return home.
