All at sea: what lies behind Southeast Asia’s migrant crisis?
15 May 2015 (IRIN ), The plight of thousands of migrants and asylum seekers from Myanmar and Bangladesh, left adrift without food and water for nearly a week, has all the hallmarks of a full-blown humanitarian crisis.

10 key trends in record year for internal displacement
6 May 2015 (IRIN ), Those trying to escape conflict and violence often only make headlines when they cross an international border and become refugees, but the majority of people forced to flee their homes seek refuge within the borders of their own country. They are “internally displaced persons,” or IDPs. By the end of 2014 there were 38 million of them, more than twice the number of refugees.

Forced separation: life inside Myanmar's Rohingya and Buddhist camps
23 April 2015 (IRIN ), The Myanmar government is collecting temporary identification cards from the minority Rohingya community in the western state of Rakhine, which was riven by violence between Muslims and Buddhists in 2012. Some 140,000 Rohingya and about 10,000 Buddhists still live in separate camps set up in the wake of the conflict. Three years on, IRIN finds conditions grim and attitudes entrenched.

How to improve health for Myanmar's ethnic minorities
19 February 2015 (IRIN ), Provision of health care in remote, conflict-affected regions in Myanmar continues to face chronic challenges despite recent ceasefires allowing greater access, according to new research.

Myanmar’s reform roller coaster
23 January 2015 (IRIN ), MSF's announcement that it has resumed operations in Rakhine state is welcome news. But the space for humanitarian agencies shifts in line with Myanmar's stumbling reform process. And in an election year, it could become an increasingly bumpy ride.

Australia’s new migration bill shifts task to security
18 December 2014 (IRIN ), This week's passing into law of Australia’s Migration and Maritime Powers Legislation Amendment Act, which comes on the heels of a year of tightened border controls and refugee intake policy changes, could chill regional cooperation. Experts say it reflects global trends of treating migration as a security problem, and acknowledging that might be an important avenue for Southeast Asian regional policy development.

Bangladesh's Rohingya camps - promise or peril?
25 November 2014 (IRIN ), Bangladesh's announcement that it will move two camps housing some 30,000 officially documented Rohingya refugees has heightened anxieties among the Muslim minority, who fled persecution in neighbouring Myanmar.
