Glimmer of hope for Southeast Asia's migrants
20 May 2015 (IRIN ), Indonesia and Malaysia have agreed to provide temporary shelter and assistance to thousands of migrants still stranded at sea in Southeast Asia, but they have stopped short of offering to find their boats and bring them ashore.

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. Yet despite statements of concern from governments, aid agencies and human rights groups, there is little sign of a coordinated plan to address the issue.

Malaysia and Thailand leave migrant boats adrift
13 May 2015 (IRIN ), As Europe focuses on the migrants in the Mediterranean, another humanitarian crisis is playing out on a stretch of water between the Andaman Sea and the Strait of Malacca in Southeast Asia. Hundreds, possibly thousands, of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar and Bangladeshi migrants have been deserted by smugglers and left adrift for days without food or water.

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. Developing existing ethnic minority health systems could be part of the solution, but it would require government recognition and international support.

We saw what you did - satellites and human rights

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. Observers applaud the possibility of improving camp conditions, but are concerned the move could also increase insecurity.

Creativity key to peace dividends in Myanmar
20 November 2014 (IRIN ), As Myanmar’s nationwide ceasefire negotiations continue, peace in many formerly war-torn regions has allowed state-run lifesaving services to gradually expand. But their provision is intensely politicized, and carefully crafted access strategies are vital, experts warn.

The case for including migration in the post-2015 agenda
11 November 2014 (IRIN ), As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire at the end of 2015, campaigners are calling for the inclusion of migrant worker protections in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), noting that migrants contribute billions to reducing poverty - often at great cost to their personal safety and well-being.

An ambitious plan to end statelessness
7 November 2014 (IRIN ), It is now 60 years since stateless people received recognition in international law, and the UN has two conventions (1954 and 1961) dedicated to their protection and the regularization of their situation. Yet an estimated 10 million people worldwide still suffer the problems and indignities of having no nationality.

Briefing: Myanmar’s “Rohingya” - what’s in a name?
15 September 2014 (IRIN ), Already widely reduced to statelessness and in many cases forced into camps for displaced people, an 800,000-strong population of Muslims in western Myanmar now faces increasing efforts to eradicate the very word they use to identify themselves as a group. Under pressure from Myanmar’s nominally-civilian government, the international community sometimes appears complicit in the airbrushing of “Rohingya” from official discourse.
