Buddhist-Muslim Conflicts in Burma/Myanmar

March 29 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Peter A. Coclanis, Albert Ray Newsome Distinguished Professor of History; Director, Global Research Institute

Myanmar, the former Burma, is the site of ethnic violence targeting the Muslim Rohingya people, who are regarded by some in the Buddhist majority as culturally incompatible immigrants. In response, numerous Rohingya are seeking and often being rejected asylum in neighboring Southeast Asian states. This talk will trace the history of the Rohingya people in Myanmar, and provide context for an often overlooked contemporary ethnic conflict and refugee situation.
