Rohingya Refugees with (No) Way Out

Rohingya Refugees with (No) Way Out

 

Ethnic Rohingya from Myanmar comprise one of the largest refugee communities in Southeast Asia. Having fled genocide and protracted persecution in Myanmar, Rohingya refugees continue to arrive in Thailand—by sea and by land—often in transit to Malaysia and, in some cases, in the hands of human traffickers. During this week, panelists will discuss the treatment and status of Rohingya in Thailand, their routes of travel, and continuing protection challenges. 


Speakers:

  • Mariam, Representative from the Rohingya community in Thailand
  • Siwawong Sukthawee, Researcher and Advisor, Rohingya Association of Thailand
  • Puttanee Kangkun, Senior Thailand Human Rights Specialist, Fortify Rights
  • Ismail Mad-adam, Head of Internal Affairs, Council for Humanitarian Networking of Sheikhul Islam

Moderator:
Thapanee Eadsrichai, The Reporters
