As President, Joe Biden and his team will face the ongoing repercussions of one of the worst mass atrocities in recent history, the genocide committed by the state of Myanmar against the Rohingya people.
As nearly 1 million Rohingya remain displaced in camps in Bangladesh and 600,000 more face the threat of further atrocities inside Myanmar, the Biden administration has an opportunity to change the trajectory of the crisis and hold the perpetrators of these grave crimes accountable.
Today, Refugees International is launching, Critical Policy Advice for President-Elect Biden: Leading a Global Response on the Rohingya Crisis, a report outlining a strategic plan for the Biden administration on addressing and mitigating the Rohingya crisis. The plan paves a practical way forward in which the United States makes an official declaration of genocide, leads a global effort on the Rohingya, takes concrete bilateral action to hold Myanmar accountable for their crimes, supports international accountability efforts, and maintains humanitarian support for the Rohingya.
