Burma (Myanmar): The Rohingya, the Burmese regime and the geopolitical stakes
von Pierre Rousset, ESSF, 20.9.2017

The Burmese government is pursuing a policy of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya, who are being driven out of the country. Never has the persecution of this Muslim minority reached such a level of violence. The nature of the Burmese regime, the policy of land grabbing and the geopolitical stakes are largely responsible for the paroxysmal nature of this humanitarian crisis.
