Podcast: Rohingya Genocide, Our Failure to Protect

In the Aftermath of the Rohingya Genocide: Our Failure to Protect

Listen to our latest podcast with Simon Adams, Director of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect.

Despite the post-Holocaust UN convention to ensure the protection of minority communities globally, the International community has failed to notice the signs of the Rohingya genocide, but what stopped them from taking subsequent action so long after the atrocity? Who really were responsible? And what impact do the continuing campaigns by the displaced Rohingya and international civil society have?

Dr. Simon Adams, Director of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, explores these and other questions in his recent paper “The Responsibility to Protect and the Fate of the Rohingya”, published in Brill’s Global Responsibility to Protect.
