Stateless Rohingya in Burma/Myanmar face systematic persecution that poses an existential threat to their community.
Patterns of human rights violations against them amount to crimes against humanity.


Discriminatory state policies and systematic persecution in Burma/Myanmar threaten the existence of the more than 1 million stateless Rohingya, a distinct Muslim ethnic minority group. On 20 June the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights released a report on the human rights situation of the Rohingya in Burma/Myanmar, detailing a "pattern of gross human rights violations," including discriminatory practices targeting Rohingya on the basis of their ethnic and/or religious identity. These "widespread and systematic" abuses amount to crimes against humanity.

Despite the historic 8 November democratic elections, Rohingyas were largely disenfranchised in advance of the vote and continue to be denied citizenship and other fundamental human rights. While the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD) won the elections, it did so while excluding all Muslims as candidates. NLD leader Aung San Suu Kyi has publicly stated that the government will not use the term "Rohingya," cautioning against "emotive" and "controversial" terms.

More than 140,000 people, mostly Rohingyas, remain segregated in IDP camps as a result of previous inter-communal violence. After visiting during February 2016, the Director of Operations for OCHA, John Ging, described the "appalling" conditions in Rohingya displacement camps and appealed for an end to the "discriminatory and repugnant policies" of segregation and disenfranchisement.
