Cresa Pugh, a PhD student in Sociology & Social Policy, has traveled to Northern Rakhine state, where more than 140,000 Rohingya Muslims live in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps. In this Veritalk podcast on the topic of displacement, Cresa shares with Anna Fisher-Pinkert what she's learned about the lives of displaced Rohingya Muslims, offering insights into the origins of prejudice, revealing how marginalized people are often blamed for their own suffering, and explaining why persecution of the Rohingya continues in Burma.
