Policy Papers on Rohingya Women: “After The Dark, I Bloom Like a Flower” & “We Live Our Lives in Uncertainty”

AJAR is proud to announce the publication of two policy papers. The papers draw from the participatory workshops conducted by AJAR and Liberation War Museum Bangladesh with over 100 Rohingya refugee women in Cox’s Bazar since early 2019.

Quilting for Justice

Since 2019, AJAR and the Liberation War Museum have been conducting participatory action workshop modules with over 100 Rohingya female refugees in the camps in Cox’s Bazar. As sewing is a common pastime for many Rohingya women, the participants were invited to embroider panels of their memories and hopes. The quilts have been displayed in exhibitions and online.

Quilting for Justice: An Illustrated Guide

This illustrated guide explains the different international mechanisms advancing justice for the Rohingya, by following a fictional character as she shares her story and information about the mechanisms with others in her community. When crafting this story, Asia Justice and Rights and Liberation War Museum Bangladesh relied on their experiences working with female Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar. The images that accompany the story were taken from quilts produced by the women depicting their real-life memories and hopes.

International Accountability Mechanisms for Myanmar Series

AJAR has produced a series of learning materials to explain the international justice mechanisms that are working to advance justice for the Rohingya, including the International Criminal Court (ICC), the International Court of Justice (ICJ), and the Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar (IIMM). These were previously available in English and Burmese. Today we add a Bangla version of the learning materials to our website, which can be accessed here.
