This is the US Campaign for Burma’s 29th monthly On-The-Ground in Burma briefer! This month’s briefer dives into the “forced” repatriation of the Rohingya and the Burmese junta’s efforts to “legitimize” its pilot program, despite guidelines set by the UNHCR. This briefer also features an interview with an IDP from Karenni state on the access to health and education, as well as other updates in Karenni IDP camps.

This month’s briefer includes:

  • June highlights
  • An analysis on the “forced” repatriation of the Rohingya
  • Four major policy recommendations
  • A feature interview with an IDP from Karenni state
  • An overview of IDP issues and rights abuses in each ethnic state and central Burma

As the conflict escalates in Burma between the pro-junta militias, anti-coup forces, and the military, so has the violence and rights deprivations in ethnic regions and central Burma. Without strong tangible action, the Burmese junta will continue to commit crimes against humanity with impunity.
