ASEAN’s Rakhine Crisis – Episode 2: ‘We feel abandoned by ASEAN’

Episode two in a two-part series that assesses the response of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to the ongoing crisis in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, following the devastating military-led crackdown on the Rohingya population that began on the 25th of August 2017. “To be completely candid, I think ASEAN has been pathetic in its handling of the crisis in Rakhine, going back to even the time before Burma was allowed to join ASEAN.”
