On 23 May Myanmar filed its first report to the International Court of Justice with regards to its compliance with the ICJ-ordered “provisional measures” on the allegations of Myanmar genocide against Rohingyas. The court declared Muslim ethnic Rohingyas “a protected group” under the Genocide Convention.

In this inaugural interview on the Free Rohingya Coalition Genocide Podcast Series, the world renowned genocide scholar and founding President of the Genocide Watch Gregory Stanton spoke to Dr Maung Zarni on a range of topics including The Gambia vs Myanmar case at the ICJ, the likely outcome of this international justice process, the record of global accountability efforts within the inter-state system called the United Nations, and other strategic possibilities of activism for Rohingya survivors and activists seeking accountability and justice.

This is the first of the 2 part Conversation with Professor Stanton.
