Abstract [en]

The Myanmar crisis is generally known as a textbook example of systematic genocide where the Rohingya Muslims (and to a smaller extent, Rohingya Hindus) are systematically being persecuted by a radical suborder of Buddhism (Rakhine Buddhists, also known as the Maghs) under the leadership of Ashin Wirathu and the Myanmar military commanded by General Min Aung Hlaing. The aim of this thesis is to study the international response to cases of genocide and will include previous examples of genocide (Yugoslavia and Rwanda) in order to obtain a better understanding and to study the positive steps and short-comings of those past tribunals. This thesis will utilize both liberal and realist theories, as the former explains the establishment and role of responsible international organizations, while as the latter theory is better at explaining actions and responses at a state level. In addition, we will analyze the international bodies responsible for addressing the Myanmar genocide, the current status of the crisis, and target the reasons why the conflict has not ceased nor has the Myanmar government been held responsible.
