Stateless and impoverished, Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims – a group that the UN describes as “one of the world’s most persecuted minorities” – have received worldwide attention after new reports of government brutality. Calls for Myanmar’s state counselor Aung San Suu Kyi to give up her Nobel Peace Prize have further highlighted a decades-long yet poorly understood conflict. Thomas M. Sanderson and Maxwell B. Markusen, fellows at the Washington, DC–based Center for Strategic and International Studies, have compiled a short primer that provides useful background on the most recent surge in violence. In question-and-answer format, the report outlines the main actors and the broader global implications of the conflict.

In this article, you will learn

  • Why the Rohingya are fighting the Myanmar government,

  • How the international community has responded to reports of army atrocities and

  • What broader international ramifications the conflict might bring.
