Economic lives of Rohingya refugees matter: Beyond the romantic tale of ‘Market Works for All’

Economic lives of Rohingya refugees matter: Beyond the romantic tale of ‘Market Works for All’
During 2017, almost 750,000 Rohingya refugees entered Cox’s Bazar and now more than one million of them reside in Bangladesh. Rohingya refugees are subject to life‐long statelessness and severe physical and psychological violence, as the Myanmar government denies their citizenship and any fundamental rights. I had rare, unrestricted access to Rohingya refugee camps as an independent researcher. This independence was crucial because unless a researcher sees, feels and interacts with various actors free from the interests and influence of authorities, they cannot bring facts into the public domain. Since I was born in Chittagong and fluent in Chittagonian language, which is spoken by Rohingya refugees, I was able to have deep conversations with refuges and locals in Cox’s Bazar (see my original research published in Journal of Management Studies).

Abstract

During 2017, almost 750,000 Rohingya refugees entered Cox’s Bazar and now more than one million of them reside in Bangladesh. Rohingya refugees are subject to life‐long statelessness and severe physical and psychological violence, as the Myanmar government denies their citizenship and any fundamental rights. I had rare, unrestricted access to Rohingya refugee camps as an independent researcher. This independence was crucial because unless a researcher sees, feels and interacts with various actors free from the interests and influence of authorities, they cannot bring facts into the public domain. Since I was born in Chittagong and fluent in Chittagonian language, which is spoken by Rohingya refugees, I was able to have deep conversations with refuges and locals in Cox’s Bazar (see my original research published in Journal of Management Studies).
