Conflict and Resilience Research Institute Canada (CRRIC), a Winnipeg-based policy research institute, is hosting a policy dialogue at the Mauro Centre for Peace and Justice at the University of Manitoba on May 15, 2018, at 3 p.m. The objective of the dialogue is to explore Canada’s role and strategic priorities in the Rohingya conflict’s sustainable resolution. The roundtable discussion is intended to lay the groundwork for an upcoming international seminar involving representatives of eight countries that shelter Rohingya refugees. One of the major thrusts of the dialogue is to critically analyze the recommendations of Bob Rae’s report “Tell Them We’re Human”: What Canada and The World Can Do about the Rohingya Crisis, through the perspectives of academics, human rights activists, Rohingya refugees and community leaders.
