Led by Professor Paul Chaney, this international project links with Professor Nasir Uddin of the University of Chittagong, a leading international scholar on the Rohingyas.

This new collaboration aligns with the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) call for new research on promoting human rights, good governance and social justice. By focusing on the recurrent Rohingya crisis,this project intends to address the GCRF objectives of “understanding and responding effectively to forced displacement and multiple refugee crises” – and, to “reduce conflict and promote peace, justice and humanitarian action”.

The study aims to better understand the role that civil society plays in supporting the Rohingya people in Bangladesh.
