Over 500,00 Rohingya have recently been driven out of Myanmar due to violent attacks by the country’s army, causing a refugee emergency. In this public conversation, we will consider: the history of majority nationalism and ethnic conflict in Burma/Myanmar, the perceived complicity of de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the role of Islamophobia in the current conflict, and the subject of refugee resettlement in an era of US travel- and “Muslim-bans.”
