Myanmar and the ICJ's Name And Shame Game
Hunter Marston, PhD candidate and Researcher, Australian National University
Last month, west African nation the Gambia brought a genocide case against Myanmar at the International Court of Justice. In new developments, the ICJ has now ruled that Myanmar must stop alleged genocidal acts against Rohingya Muslims, and preserve evidence of previous possible crimes by the country's military, ahead of further investigation. To discuss the implications of this new ruling, we speak to Hunter Marston, PhD candidate and Researcher at the Australian National University, about how binding this decision is, and what we can expect Myanmar to do about it.
