Advocacy for Myanmar
The 2021 military coup in Myanmar has led to a growing humanitarian and displacement catastrophe. Since the coup, the number of people in Myanmar who need humanitarian assistance has skyrocketed, and the junta continues to hamper aid access. Meanwhile, prospects for the safe return of Rohingya refugees who fled genocide at the hands of the Myanmar military are diminishing.
What Must Be Done?
Refugees International is calling for accountability for the Myanmar military’s abuses and for humanitarian aid and assistance—including through cross-border support from Myanmar’s neighbors—to those fleeing for their lives. The United States must also support further global action in the form of coordinated targeted sanctions and an arms embargo.
