Human Rights Situation in Burma(2019 January - June)

Our latest human-rights report is now available in English and Burmese online. The report is a collection of data from our members which details abuses from January to July 2019.

Among our observations, there was a 360% increase in the number of documented human rights violations in the first six months of 2019 compared to the entire 2018 reporting period.

The conflict in Rakhine State was responsible for the majority of human rights violations with skirmishes in Kachin and northern Shan states responsible for 4% of cases and 18%, respectively.

ND-Burma is grateful for the continued work of our members who work tirelessly to bring justice to survivors by advocating for stronger legal mechanisms to uphold the rule of law. Without their contributions, our work would not be possible.
