Student Workshop on Canada’s Engagement with Myanmar: Responding to the Rohingya Crisis

May 14, 2016 Vancouver, BC

In recent years, the government of Myanmar (Burma) has made important – and indeed, surprising – democratic reforms. But among the many human rights issues that remain in the country, the treatment of the Rohingya Muslim minority is among the most concerning. The international community’s response to the crisis raises several important questions, not least of all for Canada.

This one-day workshop is open to post-secondary students who want to learn more about this issue and discuss possible courses of action. The workshop will be divided into three parts:

Part I: Introduction to the topic, including relevance to Canada (approx. 1.5 hours).

Part II: Discussion of policy options for Canadian government (approx. 1.5 hours).

Part III (optional): Possibilities for taking action through a blog, a letter to the Canadian government, etc. (approx. 2 hours).
