Alicia de la Cour Venning, Dr Thomas MacManus and Professor Penny Green write on exposing the genocide of Myanmar’s Rohingya

23 October 2017

Alicia de la Cour Venning, Dr Thomas MacManus and Professor Penny Green write for the ESRC blog about their research at the International State Crime Initiative (ISCI), based at QMUL, where they investigated the historical and ongoing persecution of Myanmar’s Rohingya. They write: “Our research captures and documents the myriad strategies employed by the Myanmar state to destroy the Rohingya and the Rohingya identity. The Rohingya suffer from destitution; malnutrition and starvation; severe physical and mental illness as a result of restrictions on movement, education, marriage, childbirth, livelihood; and the ever-present threat of violence and corruption.” Read the full blog.
