No Holidays for the Burmese

No holiday for Burmese migrant workers in ThailandDuring the cold, dark and long winter, Swedes long for sunbathing and relaxation. Thailand is one of the most popular winter destinations for Swedish tourists, with a 26 percent increase in bookings for the 2015/2016 season. While the tourists enjoy all that Thailand tourism has to offer, such as the beautiful beaches, well-made beds and expansive pool areas, there is a flip-side to tourism paradise.

Malaysia: Rohingya Refugees Hope for Little and Receive Less

RohingyaIt’s been six months since as many as 1,000 Rohingya fleeing from Myanmar died in the Andaman Sea. And still, neighboring nations remain resistant to recognizing the Rohingya people’s rights as refugees. Even after neighboring governments met earlier this year and agreed to protect the Rohingya at sea, no nation has taken a leadership role in permitting them to disembark from boats safely and legally. The absence of a regional plan leaves the Rohingya vulnerable to the challenges of a perilous sea voyage, and further strands those Rohingya who have lived in Malaysia and other regional nations for up to three generations without legal rights or protection. Without a doubt, Myanmar is creating this crisis […]

UN General Assembly 2015: Updates since the 2014 UNGA Resolution on Burma/Myanmar

The Burmese authorities have failed to implement most of the recommendations from previous United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions, despite recent ones being adopted by consensus, in particular Resolution 69/248 adopted in 2014.

In 2015, authorities continued to either fail to address, or collude in serious human rights violations, and took steps to undermine the possibility of ‘free and fair’ elections on 8 November […]

COUNTDOWN TO ANNIHILATION: GENOCIDE IN MYANMAR

Genocide in MyanmarThe Rohingya face the final stages of genocide. Decades of persecution have taken on a new and intensified form since mass killings in 2012.
