Advocacy for Bangladesh
Some 1 million Rohingya people have sought refuge in Bangladesh since a genocide forced the majority of the population to flee Myanmar in 2017. In Bangladesh they face insecurity and limited access to education and livelihoods. Meanwhile, the 2021 military coup in Myanmar has diminished prospects for Rohingya to return home soon.
What Must Be Done?
The international community must maintain pressure on the Myanmar junta to address the root causes of the Rohingya crisis. Global donors must continue to support the humanitarian response in Bangladesh, while engaging Bangladesh toward policies that better include and empower Rohingya refugees.
