ogos 2019 Memories of Burmese Rohingya Refugess

Title : Memories of Burmese Rohingya Refugess : Contested Identity and Beloging

Author : Kazi Fahmida Farzana

Publisher : Palgrave macmillan

This book provides a critical analysis of the Rohingya refugees’ identity building processes and how this is closely linked to the state-building process of Myanmar as well as issues of marginalization, statelessness, forced migration, exile life, and resistance of an rthnic minority. With a focus on the ethnicminority’s life at the Myanmar-Bangladesh border, the author demonstrates how the state itself is involved in the costruction od identity, which it manipulates for its own political purposes. The study is based on original research, largely drawn from fieldwork data. It presents an alternative and endogenous interpretation of the problem in contrast to the exogenous narrative espoused by state institutions, non-governmental organizations, and the media.
