Rohingya Crisis in Bangladesh with Arild Ruud

New Books Network 2020

In this podcast, Arild Ruud from the University of Oslo talks to Duncan McCargo of NIAS about the humanitarian crisis facing the Rohingya: why did around a million displaced people end up fleeing from Burma to Bangladesh in 2017? What kind of lives are they having in refugee camps in Bangladesh? How come the international community seems largely powerless to address this desperate situation? And what does the future hold for these Rohingya refugees?
