|Issue Date:||2016||Abstract:||In Buddhist-majority Myanmar, unfair citizenship laws have rendered the Rohingya Muslims stateless. Desperate to break the cycle of persecution, poverty and exclusion, the Rohingya have been escaping to nearby Southeast Asian countries through illegal smuggling networks. Boatloads of Rohingya were left stranded in the Andaman Sea in May 2015, following collective rejection from Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Thankfully, fishermen from Aceh — a province in Indonesia — spotted the boats at sea and brought them to shore. However, despite having found a place of refuge, the Rohingya are escaping from their refugee camps. Peumulia Jamee (‘honouring your guests’ in Acehnese) looks at why the oppressed Rohingya would risk it all again — in search of a nation they can call home.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/66857||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
