The plight of Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims has made global headlines
in recent years. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled
Myanmar for Bangladesh, amidst serious allegations of genocide,
ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. The impact on
Myanmar's international standing has been massive. However, much of
the commentary so far has been reductionist, flattening complex
dynamics into a simple narrative of state oppression of a religious
minority. Exploring this long-running tripartite conflict between
the Rohingya, Rakhine and the Burman-led state, this book offers a
new analysis of the complexities of the current crisis: the fears
and motivations driving it and the competition to control
historical representations and collective memory. The authors
question these competing narratives, and examine the international
dimensions of this intractable conflict, ultimately arguing that
the central issue is a contestation over political inclusion and
control over governance.
