As the Biden Administration takes office, the crimes committed against the Rohingya may once more become a focus for American policymaking. On Friday, January 29 from 12-1 pm EST, PILPG and Orrick hosted an expert roundtable on the topic of the Rohingya Crisis and the legal basis to conclude that the Rohingya were the victims of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.

Our esteemed panelists included Rohingya social justice activist Yasmin Ullah and PILPG Senior Peace Fellows with deep expertise in the region, including several contributors to PILPG’s landmark 2018 report, Documenting Atrocity Crimes Committed Against the Rohingya in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

PILPG Managing Directors Professor Milena Sterio and Dean Michael Scharf, Senior Legal Advisor Dr. Gregory Noone, Senior Peace Fellows Drew Mann and Sandra Hodgkinson, and Yasmin Ullah all shared their experiences with these efforts.

This Expert Roundtable was held in partnership with Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a global law firm. We are grateful for their enduring support for our mission of lawyering peace.
