Learning from Rohingya Refugee Repatriation to Myanmar
Keywords:Burma, Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees, United Nations, international community, return
AbstractThe author examines the role of the United Nations and the international community in establishing criteria for the return of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar from Bangladesh. This study highlights the importance of the international community in establishing standards and supporting the return, even in cases where the national governments involved (Myanmar and Bangladesh) have never signed the un Convention on the Status of Refugees. The author concludes that the repatriation of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh has been relatively successful, and that the pattern seen in this return could be usefully replicated in order to bring about the voluntary repatriation of other refugee groups to Myanmar.
