INTRODUCTION

The Rohingya refugee response in Cox's Bazaar, Bangladesh, is unique not only in terms of the rapidity and scale of the 2017 influx, but also in the extent of exposure of the refugee camps to seasonal variability, extreme weather and natural disaster risk. One of the most disaster-prone countries in the world, Bangladesh each year experiences a high degree of seasonal variety, including the southwest monsoon and two cyclone seasons.

SRI On-Site Action Alert: Rohingya  Burma and UNHCR’s repatriation program[1]
July 17, 2003

Introduction[2]

The international community continues to be highly concerned about the curtailment of political and civil rights of the Burmese people by the military government. The recent crackdown on Aung Sun Su Kyi and the largest democratic party, the National League for Democracy (NLD) is an alarming indication that the recognition of the rights and aspirations of the people of Burma has been further marginalized.

BANGLADESH: ABUSE OF BURMESE REFUGEES FROM ARAKAN ( Asia Watch )

BANGLADESH: ABUSE OF BURMESE REFUGEES FROM ARAKAN


Introduction

Beginning in late 1991, wide-scale atrocities committed by the Burmese military, including rape, forced labor, and religious persecution, triggered an exodus of ethnic Rohingya Muslims from the northwestern Burmese state of Arakan into Bangladesh.[1] Nearly 240,000 refugees, now housed in 19 camps in and around the Bangladeshi town of Cox's Bazar, face the prospect of possible mass repatriation when the 1993 rainy season ends in October. That repatriation would be cause for concern on two grounds. First, though talks have taken place between Burmese authorities and Mrs. Sadako Ogata, head of the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR) to allow a UNHCR presence inside Burma, no final agreement has yet been reached, and grave concerns remain about military abuses in Arakan and thus about the safety of repatriated refugees. Second, when mass repatriations took place in 1992, they became the occasion for coercion and physical abuse of refugees by Bangladeshi authorities, raising serious doubts about whether most returned voluntarily.
