“Myanmar: The Ethnic Cleansing of the Rohingya & Nobel Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s Reaction”
Dr. Azeem Ibrahim
Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Policy and Research Professor at the Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College
Dr. Azeem Ibrahim is author of the recently released, “The Rohingyas: Inside Myanmar’s Hidden Genocide.” Over 400,000, 1/4 of the Rohingya population in Rakhine State, have fled their homes since the long simmering conflict between the Myanmar military and the Rohingya boiled over on August 25th. The United Nations has described the situation as a textbook example of ethnic cleansing and world leaders have pleaded with Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to speak out more forcefully about the crises.
Dr. Ibrahim is a Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Policy and Research Professor at the Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College. He received his PhD from the University of Cambridge and has previously been appointed an International Security Fellow at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a World Fellow at Yale University.
