Title: Myanmar: where ‘genocide’ doesn’t really matter
Date of publication: 30 August 2018
Description/subject: "It is still unclear whether Myanmar Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing is more upset by a United Nations report that recommends he be charged and tried for “genocide” for his military’s crackdown on Rohingya Muslims, or Facebook’s coincident decision to shutter his account for disseminating information the company said “enabled serious human-rights abuses in the country.” Yangon-based observers suggest that being shunned by Facebook could be more damaging for the loss of face it caused the military in a nation where the platform is hugely popular. Min Aung Hlaing’s account, along with other military-run pages such as the Myawady television network and Myanmar Daily Star newspaper, had more than six million combined subscribers..."

Title: As West recoils, China surges south in Myanmar
Date of publication: 24 September 2018
Description/subject: "That is changing now under nominal national leader Aung San Suu Kyi, notably at a time her elected government faces rising fire from Europe and America for the Rohingya crisis, a military-driven expulsion of over 700,000 refugees the United Nations suggests had “genocidal intent.” China has seized on Myanmar’s renewed international pariah status to push forward its corridor ambition. On September 10, the two sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the construction of a so-called “China-Myanmar Economic Corridor”, or CMEC, The CMEC is envisioned as a 1,700 kilometer-long corridor of roads and railroads connecting the Chinese city of Kunming, the capital of China’s southern Yunnan province, with three Myanmar commercial centers, namely Mandalay, Yangon and the Kyaukpyu port and economic zone that lets out on the Indian Ocean..."

Title: Myanmar risks falling into a China debt trap
Date of publication: 05 June 2018
Description/subject: ''To understand China’s top priority in Myanmar, forget Beijing’s involvement in the country’s sputtering peace process, or efforts to restart its backed but now suspended US$3.9 billion Myitsone hydroelectric dam, or even securing rights to extract copper at the locally resisted Letpadaung mine outside of Mandalay. Those are all subordinate interests to what China really wants in Myanmar: economic and strategic access to the Indian Ocean through a deep-water port at Kyaukpyu in Myanmar’s western Rakhine state, a crucial link in Beijing’s US$1 trillion Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)...''

Title: Why the UN has a genocide case on Myanmar
Date of publication: 10 September 2018
Description/subject: "Even after taking part in past United Nations human rights investigations in Sri Lanka and North Korea, nothing quite prepared former Indonesian attorney general Marzuki Darusman for the harrowing stories of the Myanmar Army’s bloody 2017 rampage that killed more than 10,000 Rohingya Muslims and drove over 700,000 into neighboring Bangladesh. As founding chairman of Indonesia’s Human Rights Commission, Darusman has an intimate knowledge of the Indonesian Army’s own record of abuse. But in the refugee camps of southern Bangladesh he and his United Nations fact-finding team (FFM) discovered the horrors of what it now calls “genocidal intent.”..."

Title: Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter & Monthly Report, September 2018
Date of publication: September 2018
Description/subject: "Map of Karen Refugee Camps 2015...Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter and Activity Report July - 2018...Monthly Activities Report July – 2018...NGO Supporters...Camp Population Report July- 2018: Registered people in the 7 camps (Mae La; Umphiem; Nu Po; Mae La Oon; Mae Ra Moe; Htam Hin; Don Yang); Unregistered people in the 7 camps; New Arrivals in the 7 camps; Pre-Screening People in the 7 Camps; Number of PAB People in the 7 camps; Boarding House Students in the 7 camps; Feeding Figures in the 7 camps; General Population in the 7 camps...According to our forefather’s saying, should not stay overnight on the way back home even if we are late or shouldn’t stay anywhere near the rivers or valley or lowland areas. These are the place where the monsters look for their preys. They would eat anything they find, maybe it be human, animals, trees, rocks, soil, big or small. What have happened to one of our camps, called Maela Oo on 19th of this month is a reflection of our forefather’s warning, where 7 houses with 8 people were swept away by the landslide, including six big trees. This was a terrible moment and emotionally unforgettable. On the other part of the world in Indonesia on 28th, more than 2,000 people died and 5,000 missing caused by Tsunami and storm. This natural calamity is unimaginable with loss of lives and caused severe destruction. This reminds me of a Christian bible chapter in Matthew 24, the saying of Jesus. Now, coming back to our refugee issue. As a part of our preparedness, a representative from Karen Refugee Committee along with ADRA – Myanmar and Thailand, Thai’s Vocational Training College representatives from Mae Sariang, Tak, Mae Sot, Kanchanaburi, Ratchburi, Bangkok, numbering 20 individuals, went to Pa-An, capital of Karen State, Burma, and met with Pa-An GTHS’s principal and teachers, studied and learning about the school program and sharing information to the school. On the same study trip, the next stop is at the upper Burma, 12 hours' drive and reaching Kyauk P’daung where we visited GTI school and met with school principal and sharing information to each other's. Our next trip was Pagan, Nyaung Oo, famous for their tourist attraction in Burma. As a General Secretary, I’ve got this privilege to be a part of the group and learn from different situations. This is probably one of the first steps in building connectivity, networking, and relationship while peace negotiation is at hand. There’s still many more steps to be undertaken to realize real peace in the country which have been for decades being discussed over the paper and have never been materialized. A pragmatic solution should be idealized and leaving behind our wishful thinking. I have learnt to reflect myself and with the community back at refugee camps. For decades, there have been a big gap between us, creating misunderstanding, confusion, and even hatred. We have gone beyond our own wishes and fail to appreciate each other weakness and learn from one another. This is just a positive side of reconciliation and forgiveness. From political stand point, negotiation will take longer and theoretical discourse will continue. Both theory and practice will need to go hand in hand. I might be wrong to say this, but I hope you can forgive me if I do so in this reflection. Respectfully yours, General Secretary Karen Refugee Committee"

Title: Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter & Monthly Report, October 2018 (English, Karen, Burmese)
Date of publication: October 2018
Description/subject: "Map of Karen Refugee Camps 2015...Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter and Activity Report July - 2018...Monthly Activities Report July – 2018...NGO Supporters...Camp Population Report July- 2018: Registered people in the 7 camps (Mae La; Umphiem; Nu Po; Mae La Oon; Mae Ra Moe; Htam Hin; Don Yang); Unregistered people in the 7 camps; New Arrivals in the 7 camps; Pre-Screening People in the 7 Camps; Number of PAB People in the 7 camps; Boarding House Students in the 7 camps; Feeding Figures in the 7 camps; General Population in the 7 camps... On 29th of October, we were visited by the top officers from the Border Consortium (TBC) briefing us both the Karen and Karenni Refugee Committees concerning the funding reduction. They stated that, a further 20% on food and charcoal assistance will be reduced. If the charcoal assistance is not reduced, but only food assistance, then 35% will have to be reduced. Alternatively, if the food assistance is not reduced but only charcoal, then 60% should be reduced. How do you think about this future? What condition the camp will look like? Will more people going out to risk their lives for jobs? For the local Thai people, what would be the benefit if refugees going out more? The truck driver, the farm owners. No doubt that, if you have money, you can buy rice or charcoal from outside, but will the money come from? For those who have relatives outside or in Third countries, they will eventually have to depend on them. But for how long is still a question. Recently, I have read through the report of KnRC concerning the analysis of camp management, and also TBC Mid-term report 2018, and went through other media reports locally and internationally; one of the things I notice is that, political security in Burma still remains a big question for the people living in and outside the country. This creates the situation where refugee return will be a great challenge. In simple words, more refugees are not willing to return now than before. If possible, they want to resettle to Third countries or remain in Thailand and work here. According to the higher officials from the government, if the refugees want to work in Thailand, they have to go back and get the passport in their country and come back and work. However, it is still not a practical solution for the refugees to go back and get their identity card. What the refugees will need be to open up a way for them to get some sort of status where they can go out and work during this interim arrangement. I believe that, at the moment, this information has been spreading and a lot of concerns are circulated. Some of them will pray for each other’s whether in refugee camps, or along the border or in Third countries. If all the political negotiations are truly committed by both government and armed groups, thing will get better, if it is not with truthful hearts, things will get only worse. This is my personal reflection and do not target anyone or individual organization. I hope you all think about what we are going through now and what will be happening for the next few years. What will be our future look like whether in or outside refugee camps. Best wishes to you all! General Secretary Karen Refugee Committee"

Title: Critical Thinking in Myanmar’s Education System (Part I)
Date of publication: 07 November 2018
Description/subject: "This is part one of a five-part post by Monash University students from a two-week study tour to Myanmar. Editor’s Note: In July this year, nineteen Criminology students from Monash University travelled to Myanmar on a two-week study tour, sponsored by the New Colombo Plan Mobility Grant. This was the first Monash study tour to Myanmar and the first study tour to Myanmar with a focus on crime and criminal justice. Students engaged with a number of representatives from government, non-government, INGOs, universities and other agencies, as well as individuals including young activists and journalists, all working within Myanmar’s law enforcement and criminal justice sector. Through this learning experience, students developed and deepened their knowledge and understanding of the complexities behind Myanmar’s human rights, political, diplomatic, education agendas and how they intersect. Myanmar’s newly evolving democracy is limited by a lack of open debate and free discussion. Contributing to this is the education system, which encourages rote learning without challenge and promotes teacher ascendancy through the teacher-centred approach to learning. The previous military regime exploited the education curriculum as a political tool to prohibit open dissent and challenge to their authority, by instigating a state-wide attitude that disapproves of independent thinking. Consequently, the education system is resistant to reforms intending to introduce critical thinking..."

Title: Facebook in Myanmar: A Human Problem that AI Can’t Solve
Date of publication: 06 November 2018
Description/subject: "While Facebook policy disallows hate speech, Facebook’s overwhelming popularity in politically turbulent Myanmar means the platform is widely abused to disseminate hate speech and fake news— particularly anti-Muslim and anti-Rohingya sentiment—with disastrous consequences. The UN describes the mass exodus of over 700,000 Rohingya from Myanmar as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” and recently determined that top military officials be prosecuted for committing genocide, referencing the role of Facebook in propagating hatred towards the vulnerable group. A recent Reuters investigation found more than 1,000 examples of posts, comments and pornographic images attacking the Rohingya and other Muslims that had for years evaded the platform’s content monitoring and remained on Facebook in Burmese language. Facebook has been both reluctant and, more recently, incapable of addressing the platform’s role as a medium for inciting violence in Myanmar. While the company is eager to enter new developing markets for profit, its systems are not equipped to handle complex language translation, to understand localised political knowledge, or to account for abysmal levels of media literacy in these locations. For example, Facebook’s auto-translation system has problems translating Burmese, providing bizarre results; one post referenced in the Reuters investigation was translated from Burmese saying “Kill all the kalars that you see in Myanmar; none of them should be left alive” into English as “I shouldn’t have a rainbow in Myanmar.” Facebook subsequently disabled the Burmese auto-translation feature for ordinary Facebook users after the Reuters investigation was published..."

Title: Toungoo Interview: Repeated instances of land confiscations harm the livelihoods of local community members, November 2017
Date of publication: 13 November 2018
Description/subject: "In 1993, the construction of the P’Thi Dam led to land confiscations and widespread displacement. Stripped of their land, many subsistence farmers became day wage labourers, working under difficult conditions. This land confiscation continues to impact the livelihoods of local people to this day. The displaced communities have yet to receive any compensation, or even to benefit from a connection to electricity. Despite this, villagers continue to reclaim their ancestral lands through consultation and court hearings. Since the construction of the hydropower dam, this community has faced a series of successive land confiscations by private companies. The remaining land has been confiscated by the Tatmadaw. Local plantations are being used for shooting practice, threatening the security of local farmers. The community wants the Tatmadaw to withdraw the camp from their lands..."

Title: The Cross of the Moment (video)

Description/subject: "The Cross of the Moment attempts to connect the dots between Fermi’s Paradox, climate change, capitalism, and collapse. Interviews with top scientists and public intellectuals are woven together into a narrative that is challenging, exhausting, and often depressing as it refuses to accept the easy answers posited by other overly-simplistic climate change documentaries.

Title: Thailand the missing link in China’s Maritime Silk Road
Date of publication: 09 November 2018
Description/subject: "In a policy shift, Thai PM Prayut Chan-ocha says state agencies will study the construction of a long-envisioned ocean-linking canal China craves for economic and security reasons...After demurring for years, Thai Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-ocha last week ordered national planning and security agencies to look into building a possible canal across the narrow Isthmus of Kra in the kingdom’s southern region. The canal is a major focus of a book I published last year, in which I argue that China will eventually lead efforts on the long-envisioned but never realized construction. Indeed, the order came a month after China’s ambassador to Thailand confirmed the canal as part of his country’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Beijing’s US$1 trillion flagship project for global economic expansion. Although the BRI — including a “Maritime Silk Road” — is a logical undertaking for the most relentless economy in history, less discussed is its possible role under a concurrent security-driven policy. Consistent with much of China’s economic outreach in South and Southeast Asia since the turn of the century, its Silk Road can also be seen as a geo-political project aimed at power projection. The benign rubric of development, integration, and “connectivity” — already challenged on the grounds of accompanying “debt traps” — is thus subject to further scrutiny from a security standpoint. The Silk Road’s architects likely include military as well as market analysts, projecting not only economic returns but the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) ability to prevail in a regional conflict..."

Title: Myanmar’s troubles persist – and China sees it all as part of a great game
Date of publication: 11 January 2018
Description/subject: "Before the West started paying real attention to the Rohingya crisis, Myanmar’s democratic transition was something of a cause celebre. But in reality, the country is still under military sway, and the democratic West is still less influential in Myanmar than China. Beijing’s interests are still a decisive economic influence in the country, which is clearly a potentially crucial partner in China’s gargantuan Belt and Road initiative.To be sure, China is just one of Myanmar’s heavyweight international protectors, which also include Russia and India. These three countries all share certain urgent concerns, among them the threat of militant radical Islamism. Connections have been drawn between Rohingya militants and Pakistani extremist groups such as Jaish-e-Mohammed, this just as Beijing is increasing pressure on Pakistan to curb its support for fundamentalist groups that could threaten Chinese interests in Asia. As it surveys this troubling map – which also includes an insurgency among the Uighur Muslims of China’s own Xinjiang province – Beijing views Myanmar’s crackdown not as a domestic problem for a junior partner, but as another front in a wider struggle for stability. And just as Myanmar fits into that particular Chinese strategy, it also has a part to play in various others..."

Title: â€œOne Belt-One Road Initiative and MYANMAR” Connectivity: Synergy Issue and Potentialities
Date of publication: 11 March 2018
Description/subject: "...Myanmar occupies a rather unique position in the Belt and Road Initiative. Most notably, Myanmar is seen as a link that connects both the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and the Silk Road Economic Belt, making it an integral component of both. Form a strategic perspective, Myanmar is one of the two direct access points to the Indian Ocean for China. Theoretically, Myanmar should be a priority country in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, given its unique location. Therefore Myanmar Become a key BRI terrestrial-maritime corridor connector, has allowed China to diversify its energy import over land and has found itself in a complex, simultaneous political transition and peace process, where China has a key but shifting role. Since 1988, China becomes a major investor and in the wake of Myanmar’s isolation from rest of the world, China and Myanmar came closer to each other. In conclusion, the concrete implementation of BRI projects has raised the stakes for China in Myanmar, translating into multi-level engagement, including infrastructure and industrial cooperation, support for the government’s peace process. Regarding the core issue of achieving sustainable agreements between the government and the multiple ethnic armed groups (EAGs), China is the key external actor and BRI engagements are currently contributing to China’s active role. For Myanmar, the BRI holds the promise of much needed connectivity and industrial development."

Title: Mounting confusion over forced Rohingya repatriation to Myanmar
Date of publication: 15 November 2018
Description/subject: "Expulsion planned for Thursday may not go ahead as Rohingya go into hiding while agencies warn return too dangerous...There is growing confusion over whether the planned forced repatriation of Rohingya Muslims back to Myanmar will begin on Thursday as planned. Bangladesh began preparations to send back an initial group of Rohingya to Myanmar in line with a bilateral plan agreed by the two governments in October. The move has been opposed by the United Nations' refugee agency and aid groups who fear for the safety of the ethnic minority. The Rohingya themselves have also said they are terrified of returning to the Buddhist-majority country. Some have gone into hiding. "It is not happening tomorrow as nobody wants to go back," Reuters news agency quoted one anonymous source as saying. Bangladesh has deployed the army to the refugee camps ahead of the expulsion in a move Human Rights Watch said underlined the refugees' fear of return. 'Genocidal intent': UN says Myanmar military leaders must face prosecution "The Bangladesh government will be stunned to see how quickly interntional opinion turns against it if it starts sending unwilling Rohingya refugees back into harm's way in Myanmar," Bill Frelick, the group's refugee rights director, said in a statement..."

Title: Forced repatriation of Rohingya refugees
Date of publication: 14 November 2018
Description/subject: "Following a bilateral agreement between the governments of Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh, the repatriation of more than 2,000 Rohingya refugees back to Myanmar is due to begin tomorrow, 15 November. The decision has been widely criticized as it places returnees at extreme risk of further persecution, and was taken without the consent of either the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) or Rohingya refugee organizations. Forced repatriation under such conditions violates the principle of non-refoulement enshrined in the 1951 Refugee Convention, and would be both immoral and illegal. According to the UN Human Rights Council- mandated Independent International Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) on Myanmar, military operations launched in Rakhine State by Myanmar's security forces during 2017 were conducted with "genocidal intent," including a premeditated plan for the destruction of Rohingya communities. Following the widespread killing of Rohingya civilians and the burning of nearly 400 villages, over 720,000 people fled the country, bringing the number of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh to more than 900,000..."

Four trucks and three buses have been stationed at Unchiprang camp in Cox’s Bazar since Thursday morning, ready to carry refugees who have been “approved” to a transit camp by the border – but not one refugee has been willing to board them.

The army, police and paramilitary troops have moved into several of the camps, where over 700,000 Rohingya are living after fleeing a campaign of violence, described as genocide by a UN fact-finding mission, carried out by the Myanmar military in August 2017. Qadar, a 29-year-old Rohingya refugee in Jamtoli camp, said many families, even those not among the list approved for return by Myanmar, had gone into hiding..."

Title: Bachelet: Returning Rohingya refugees to Myanmar would place them at serious risk of human rights violations
Date of publication: 13 November 2018
Description/subject: "GENEVA (13 November 2018) – UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on Tuesday urged the Government of Bangladesh to halt plans for the repatriation of more than 2,200 Rohingya refugees to Myanmar, warning that the returns would be in violation of international law and put their lives and freedom at serious risk. The refugees in Cox’s Bazar are the victims of human rights violations committed in the midst of the violence that erupted in August 2017, which led to the flight of more than 725,000 people. Many witnessed the killings of members of their families and the burning down of their homes and villages. Refugees have stated repeatedly that they do not wish to return under current conditions. The Office also continues to receive reports of ongoing violations of the rights of Rohingya remaining in northern Rakhine, which include allegations of killings, disappearances and arbitrary arrests, as well as widespread restrictions on the rights to freedom of movement, health and education. About 130,000 internally displaced people (IDPs), many of whom are Rohingya, remain in camps in central Rakhine. Another 5,000 IDPs remain in No Man’s Land between Myanmar and Bangladesh while more than 4,000 are in Aung Mingalar ward in Sittwe, where they are subjected to a wide range of restrictions. Hundreds of thousands of people in other parts of Rakhine also remain deprived of their rights to freedom of movement, to basic services and livelihood – as well as their right to a nationality..."

Title: MYANMAR’S ARMED FORCES AND THE ROHINGYA CRISIS
Date of publication: August 2018
Description/subject: "In the wake of the 2016 and 2017 “area clearance operations” against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, this report explores the structure, training, and ethos of the Myanmar armed forces to clarify the implications and challenges of, as well as the prospects for, a solution and an accounting for past events. Drawing on an in-depth review of the literature, extensive field experience, and interviews, the report is produced by the Asia Center at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) as part of its effort to inform policy and strategies on managing violent conflict.... Conclusion: Myanmar has always posed very difficult challenges for the international community. For decades, successive governments in Rangoon and Naypyidaw have strongly resisted external pressures. Between 1988 and 2011, for example, public criticism, economic sanctions, and other punitive measures failed to change the core beliefs and key policies of the country’s military rulers. Indeed, such measures seemed only to antagonize the generals, encourage a bunker 38 USIP.ORG PEACEWORKS 140 mentality, and make those in power even more resistant to change.318 At times, policies of dialogue and engagement seemed to hold out greater promise, and some progress was made, but more often than not Naypyidaw took whatever inducements were on offer and continued to pursue its own agenda. The controlled democratization process that was launched in 2010, for example, faithfully follows a seven-step transition plan that was conceived by the Tatmadaw leadership fifteen years ago.319 Despite the advent of a quasi-democratic administration under Aung San Suu Kyi in 2016, there are no signs that this pattern will change in the foreseeable future. The pro-military constitution severely limits Aung San Suu Kyi’s freedom of action in key areas, notably those relating to Myanmar’s security. She also faces other constraints. However, she has demonstrated that, like the military officers who preceded her and still exercise influence over her government, she holds firmly to the nationalist position that Myanmar and Myanmar alone will decide what is best for the country and its people, according to its perceived interests and priorities at the time. She clearly does not feel an obligation to conform to her public image as a human rights icon, or to repay the debt that many in the international community seem to feel they are owed for her rehabilitation and subsequent elevation to the de facto leadership of the country. With regard to the Rohingyas in particular, domestic factors will always be of paramount concern to Myanmar’s civilian and military leaders, and at present there is no pressure from within the country to soften their uncompromising approach. Indeed, as the International Crisis Group has pointed out, there is currently a rare consensus between Aung San Suu Kyi, her government, the armed forces leadership, and the wider population that the Rohingya crisis continues to demand a very firm and consistent policy response. Given the Tatmadaw’s strength, and the government’s weakness, the popular mood can only harden Naypyidaw’s determination to decide its own agenda and timetable for any changes, regardless of external pressures. This position may come at a high price but, as so often in the past, it will be paid if that is seen to be the cost of preserving Myanmar’s stability, sovereignty, and independence.320 The international community can take a number of practical measures now to assist the refugees in Bangladesh and document the abuses perpetrated against them. It is possible that, at some stage, the Myanmar authorities may permit the delivery of adequate humanitarian assistance to those communities still suffering in Rakhine State. Several largely symbolic steps can also be taken to bring home to the Myanmar government, armed forces, and people the impact of recent developments on majority world opinion. However, unless there are significant shifts in attitude inside Myanmar, at all levels, a fair, durable, and long-term solution to the Rohingya crisis, let alone a formal, legal accounting for the events of the past eighteen months, will remain a distant prospect.

Title: Does repatriation of Rohingya breach international law? (video)
Date of publication: 15 November 2018
Description/subject: "Bangladesh halts transportation of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar after protests...The first group of 2,200 Rohingya refugees were due to leave camps in Bangladesh on Thursday in line with a plan agreed with Myanmar. But authorities appeared to postpone the operation after protests by Rohingya who said they did not want to go. The United Nations and aid agencies also expressed concerns for their safety if they went back to Myanmar. The United Nations described as an "act of genocide" the military crackdown last year when more than 700,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar's Rakhine state. So, does the repatriation deal violate international law? And what is next for the Rohingya refugees that do not want to leave?"

India last December pledged US$25 million over the next five years to the “restoration of normalcy” in Rakhine, and is currently involved in a project to build 1,500 housing units there. India and China both have infrastructure projects important to their own domestic interests underway in Rakhine.

Title: Bangladesh-Myanmar: The Danger of Forced Rohingya Repatriation
Date of publication: 12 November 2018
Description/subject: "Bangladesh is poised to begin returning several thousand Rohingya refugees to Myanmar. This repatriation is unlikely to be voluntary and should not proceed. It would not only violate Bangladesh’s international legal obligations and jeopardise the safety of the refugees, but risks triggering violence and greater instability on both sides of the border. Bangladesh and Myanmar should immediately halt the plan. The UN, including the secretary-general’s special envoy and the UN refugee agency,should continue to firmly oppose it, both in public and in private, and establish a process whereby Rohingya refugees are consulted about their future. The U.S., European Union (EU), Australia, Canada and others also should press Bangladesh and Myanmar to halt the returns and instead work to create conditions conducive to voluntary repatriation; those countries’ participation at the 11-15 November ASEAN summits in Singapore is an opportunity to do so..."

Title: Statement by UN High Commissioner for Refugees on the repatriation of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar
Date of publication: 11 November 2018
Description/subject: "UNHCR supports the voluntary and sustainable repatriation of Rohingya refugees in safety and in dignity to their places of origin or choice, and will work with all parties towards this goal. The repatriation of refugees is premised upon the free and informed decision by refugees, on an individual basis, to return. Refugee returns should only take place at their freely expressed wish based on relevant and reliable knowledge of the conditions within the country of origin and the area of return. The best way to provide that knowledge to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh is to allow them to go and see the conditions in Myanmar for themselves. Before making a choice of whether to return or not, the refugees reportedly verified by Myanmar as having the right to return should be allowed to visit their places of origin in Rakhine State, or other places to which they might choose to return, so that they themselves can make an independent assessment of whether they feel they can return there in safety and dignity. Myanmar authorities should allow these refugees to undertake such go-and-see visits without prejudice to their right to return at a later date, if indeed the refugees decide after the visits that the current conditions in Rakhine State would not allow them to return in safety and dignity..."

Title: Rohingya fears grow as refugees face forcible return to Myanmar
Date of publication: 11 November 2018
Description/subject: "The governments of Bangladesh and Myanmar are to push ahead with the repatriation of thousands of Rohingya this week, despite objections by the UN, and against the wishes of the refugees, who spoke of being “terrified” at being sent back. Last week fear gripped the camps in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh at the news that, without their consent, 4,355 people had been placed on a list of Rohingya approved for return by Myanmar. The first repatriations are due from Thursday, but not everyone who is on the list has been informed and it is unclear how it was compiled..."

Title: Commentary: Why the Rohingya refugees should not be repatriated yet
Date of publication: 12 November 2018
Description/subject: "NEW DELHI: Last month, Bangladesh and Myanmar announced the signing of a new agreement to begin the repatriation of Rohingya refugees from their makeshift camps in Cox’s Bazar to Rakhine State within the coming weeks. Close to 720,000 Rohingya had fled to Bangladesh since last year August. So far, Myanmar has cleared only 4,600 names for return from the original list of more than 8,000 from Dhaka. While announcing the latest return deal, Myanmar’s foreign secretary, Myint Thu said there was a “very concrete plan” to start the return process “at the earliest possible date” and framed the decision as a show of “political will, flexibility, and accommodation”. His Bangladeshi counterpart, Shahidul Haque, said that repatriation should begin mid-November..."
