The PSRP today publishes its latest working paper on Myanmar and the return of displaced people.
This timely publication, written by Political Settlements Research Programme (PSRP) associate Kirsten MConnachie, focuses on the experience of displacement in and from Myanmar. In September 2017, more than 300,000 refugees fled to Bangladesh from Rakhine State that shows the scale and urgency of this problem.
McConnachie sets out important recommendations for displacement-specific provisions in a peace agreement to suit the Myanmar context.
