Time: 14:00-17:00

In this lecture, you will learn about ethnic groups in Asia that are stateless and what that means for them in their daily life. The main focus will, however, be on the Rohingya who have since 2012 left Myanmar's Rakhine State en masse. Who are they and why did they have to flee? How is the conflict in Rakhine State connected to the recent transition process in Myanmar?
