This panel event, co-hosted by the International State Crime Initiative at Queen Mary University of London and Restless Beings, will look at the citizenship crises in Assam, India and Rakhine, Burma/Myanmar. Covering issues such as the ICJ judgement and its implications on Burma and the Rohingya as well as the NRC and CAA initiatives by the Government of India that affect citizenship in Assam, speakers will delve into the process behind which communities in the borderlands are disenfranchised and essentially left without citizenship.


  • Dr Thomas MacManus - Chair (ISCI)
  • Dr Ronan Lee (ISCI)
  • Mabrur Ahmed (Restless Beings)

Co-hosted by ISCI at Queen Mary University of London & Restless Beings (an international human rights organisation working with marginalised communities across India and the Rohingya in Burma and diaspora).
