Arunn Jegan, The Interpreter:
The Rohingya people need a new deal. With Australia’s decision on 10 November to prioritise Myanmar nationals for humanitarian visas, now is the time for the government to step up and include the Rohingya in this arrangement. After facing decades of violence in Myanmar, the stateless Rohingya people are now scattered across the Asia-Pacific and Middle East, with the vast majority living in detainment camps. There are more than three million stateless Rohingya, and their plight is one of the most pressing and long-standing humanitarian stalemates of the last 40 years.
