South Metro Interfaith Community February Meeting: Local-Global Dynamics of the Rohingya Crisis in Myanmar/Burma

Thursday, February 21, 2019
6:15 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.
Galaxie Library Large Meeting Room
University of St. Thomas, St. Paul Campus
14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley MN 55124

What are the drivers of “Rohingya” crisis in Burma/Myanmar? As Myanmar embraces a process of political transition from military authoritarian era to a constitutional democracy, several ethnic, religious, political, and economic issues that were muted under the totalitarian era from 1962 to 2008 surfaced to define both identity and positions of several ethnic groups including immigrant communities to Myanmar.

Professor Tun Myint, of Carleton College, will present local-global dynamics and drivers that define the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar and Shamaila Usmani of American Refugee Committee will share some of her experiences with Rohingya people in a refugee camp in Bangladesh.
