Transitional Justice for the Persecution of the Rohingya

The Rohingyas are widely considered to be the most persecuted people in the world. But where the international community sees the Rohingyas as victims of abject persecution, the Burmese political authorities portray them as dangerous foreigners influenced by Islamist extremism who are intent on overtaking the homeland. These competing narratives will make resolution of the conflict exceedingly difficult. This Essay explores the means of justice and accountability available to relevant actors, namely the National League for Democracy (“NLD”)-led government, the international community, and Myanmar’s neighbors.
