Rohingyas and the Democratization in Myanmar

We are again bombarded by photographs and news of renewed violence in Myanmar’s Arakan region (officially Rakhine state). Meanwhile, at the UN in New York, the delegates listened to the report of UN Human Rights Special Rapporteur for Myanmar Mr. Quintana.
