The Rohingya refugees are considered as the most disgraced ethnic minority of the present world. They are forced to leave their own country as the series of brutal crackdowns were carried out by Myanmar military from long since. The number of Rohingya influx has crossed all the previous records as 600,000 Rohingya refugees have fled persecution following an alleged killing of 12 security officers by ARSA on August 25, 2017. Having considered the brutality on Rohingya, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has ruled on September 6, 2018, that the court may exercise its jurisdiction over the alleged deportation of Rohingya people from Myanmar to Bangladesh since the crimes are of trans-boundary nature. Besides, the jurists from all around the world are searching for avenues under which the culprits can be held liable for their crimes against humanity.
In this respect, the Bangladesh Institute of Law and International Affairs (BILIA) is going to organize a symposium titled "Prosecution for Violation of Human Rights: The Rohingya Crisis in Context" in which two papers will be presented.
