The International Conclave to bring focus on the issue of justice and accountability for the Rohingyas will be held in Hague.

The Centre for Peace and Justice (CPJ) of BRAC University, Asia Justice Coalition, and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam will organize the event, said a press release.  

The event, which will be held on October 18 in Hague, will call on global experts to provide updates on the status of justice and accountability efforts, as well as offer nuanced insights into the root causes of the crisis and the multiple political and social components needed to forge a durable solution.

The main themes of the international conclave are Atrocity, Accountability, and Justice.

Since 2017, Bangladesh has been hosting over a million Rohingya refugees, also known as "Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals" (FDMN). This is in addition to hosting an already large Rohingya refugee community that has crossed over for decades, resulting in Bangladesh accommodating 4.7% of total global refugee population. The international crimes committed in Myanmar against the Rohingya have triggered a number of accountability initiatives, including a case before the International Criminal Court on forced deportation as a crime against humanity.

Aim of the Conclave

To bring justice and accountability to the Centre of the Rohingya refugee crisis, the Conclave is organized around discrete but interconnected aims, which include:

1. Highlight the various justice and accountability initiatives underway globally, as well as the need for multi-faceted approaches toward a sustainable solution.

2. Mobilize public and policy support for these initiatives, including consolidating a civil society network to advocate for accountability and promote social justice.

3. Examine root causes and ongoing policy challenges in order to inform future advocacy strategies and ensure justice and accountability for the Rohingya.
