The Risk of Mass Atrocities During a Pandemic

On Wednesday, August 19, at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) hosted a conversation on the prevention of mass atrocities during the pandemic, to coincide with the August 25 anniversary of attacks by Myanmar security forces on Rohingya Muslim residents in northern Rakhine state, driving hundreds of thousands to live as refugees in neighboring Bangladesh.

Our moderator was PHR board member Ambassador Stephen Rapp, JD, Sonia, and Harry Blumenthal Distinguished Fellow for the Prevention of Genocide at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide.
