Event details

This lecture is supported by Humanities, Business & Law and Amnesty International. This is the seventh annual Human Rights Lecture and this year our speaker is Professor Penny Green, Professor of Law and Globalisation at Queen Mary University of London.

View from the End:, Myanmar, Genocide and the Rohingya

This lecture examines the genocide of Myanmar’s Muslim ethnic Rohingya within a state crime framework. It also argues for the importance of defining the persecution of the Rohingya as genocide and not ‘ethnic cleansing’. The talk will be based on 2 research fieldtrips, the first to Rakhine state in 2014-15 and the second to the vast and newly formed Rohingya camps in southern Bangladesh in October/November 2017.

There will also be an end of lecture collection for Amnesty International.
