In what many are calling genocide, over half a million Rohingya, Myanmar’s dispossessed Muslim minority, have been driven from their homes since August of 2017. Most have flooded into Bangladesh in search of safety from brutal killings and sexual violence. The pace of new arrivals has made this the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world, potentially overwhelming the capacity of the inadvertent host government. Panelists, Muhammad Musa, Executive Director, BRAC, Aerlyn Pfeil, Board Member, Médecins sans Frontières, and Nirmala Rao, Vice Chancellor, Asian University for Women, share how they are bringing safety and sustenance to the stateless Rohingya. They are in discussion with Iain Levine, Program Director, Human Rights Watch.
