dc.description.abstract The Myanmar conflict is an ongoing sectarian conflict that defies human rights and human dignity. It also thrives on discrimination against minorities such as the Rohingya community in particular and the UN Secretary-General has described the Rohingyas as “one of, if not, most discriminated people in the world.” The Rohingya Muslims and other minorities are under Myanmar’s security forces’ mercy as they conduct atrocities against them by denying them basic rights and excluding them from governmental representation. In this paper I will be examining how to prevent genocide against vulnerable minorities of diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds taking the Rohingyas as an example. Moreover, I will map the conflict to look at the root causes to search for what happened, what are the issues and who are the main actors in the conflict. Moreover, I will analyze the information obtained from the conflict mapping by using the TNC model to look at the conflict from different scales; international, regional, national and elite. These levels will help in understanding how the conflict is operating in order to present a proper analysis of what is going on in Myanmar. Lastly, I will discuss how third parties exert pressure and defend the Rohingya community to bring to justice those who committed crimes against humanity. Thus, I will demonstrate how the global coalitions such, as NGOs, ICJ, UN bodies… etc., are working on a resolution and an intervention for this ongoing conflict by using different relative methods. en_US
