Since August 2017, the Tatmadaw, Myanmar's security forces, have conducted clearance operations in the Rakhine State, driving a mass exodus of ethnic Rohingyas to neighboring Bangladesh. In The Rohingya Crisis, Kawser Ahmed and Helal Mohiuddin address core questions about the conflict and its global-regional significance. Who are the Rohingyas and what are the main issues related to their identity? What are the root causes of the conflict? How has statelessness contributed to this genocide? What are the regional and global security ramifications of the conflict? What are the geo-economic and geo-political factors contributing to conflict? What are the perceptions of the stranded Rohingyas about their desired livelihood? What are the best ways toward safe and secure repatriation? And what are specific peacebuilding avenues available for conflict transformation at the macro-, meso-, and micro-level?

This is a must-read book for those seeking to understand the complexity of the Rohingya crisis and its implications for Bangladesh... A very useful work that should be of interest to all in refugee studies globally.--Mohammad Zaman, National Research Center for Resettlement, Hohai University
The persistent suffering of the Rohingya people has been poorly understood by the international community and is often dominated by biased competing narratives. This study is a welcome, digestible analysis in an appropriately multidisciplinary treatment. Those seeking durable solutions will benefit from this concise contribution.--John Packer, University of Ottawa
