Xchange Rohingya Survey 2017 Findings

Season 1, Episode 19,  Dec 15, 2017, 11:33 AM

Episode 19 of the MOAS podcast talks to those involved in the Xchange.org Rohingya Survey 2017. We also hear from Rohingya people on what they have experienced since August 25th.

Since 25th August 2017, over half a million Rohingya refugees from Rakhine State, in northwestern Myanmar, have fled their homes for neighbouring Bangladesh.

Those who have arrived in Bangladesh describe horrific crimes committed against them and their families. These range from the burning of entire villages and raping of women and girls to the murder of infants and mass shooting of civilians.

The Xchange Rohingya Survey 2017 brings together a dedicated field team to collect data from new Rohingya settlements in Bangladesh, with the aim of documenting incidents and abuses against the Muslim minority group to better understand the dynamics of their exodus.
