Against the backdrop of the completely stalled efforts at repatriating Rohingyas from Bangladesh to their country of origin, Myanmar, which the UN Fact Finding Mission officially recognized as a member state with an 'ongoing issue of genocide', the conference is designed to call the world’s attention to, and educate the international public at large about, the twofold need of protection and accountability which Rohingya genocide survivors and other ethnic and religious minorities such as Kachin, Shan, Karen, Myanmar Muslims, etc. demand and deserve. To that end, the conference brings together leading Rohingya campaigners, renowned genocide scholars, engaged international law practitioners, UN officials, and international friends of Rohingyas.
