Another Boat Carrying Rohingya Refugees is Adrift At Sea. Will Anyone Save Them?

In the past week, distressing reports have once again emerged of Rohingya refugees left stranded on a boat out at sea. Unfortunately in Southeast Asia, it’s something that’s happened again and again, often with countries in the region pushing the responsibility to each other, and in many cases with refugees - adults and children - dying at sea. To shed some light on what’s happening now as well as the larger issue of how we address humanitarian crises such as this, we’re joined by Lilianne Fan, Chair of the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network’s Rohingya Working Group. Lilianne is also the co-founder and international director of the Geutanyoe Foundation which works with refugees and marginalised groups.
