Refugee Crises in South Asia
In this course we will take a multi-disciplinary approach to study cases of refugee crises in contemporary South Asia—one of the largest refugee hosting regions of the world. We will examine the ongoing Rohingya Refugee Crisis in the Bangladesh-Myanmar Borderland, and try to connect it to earlier refugee crises situations in the region, such as during the Partition of British India in 1947, the Bangladesh war of 1971, the disenfranchisement of Nepali-origin Bhutanese in the eighties, and the three decade-long Sri Lankan Civil War. Lectures will be complemented with film screenings and interviews of South Asia experts via Skype. (International Relations & Foreign Policy) /(Anthropology)/
