Greg Constantine: The Rohingya Community in Bangladesh

Reporting from Bangladesh, Pulitzer Center grantee Greg Constantine discusses a web of issues faced by the Rohingya community—an ethnic minority group stripped of citizenship in Myanmar (Burma). Their plight exemplifies the consequences of statelessness worldwide. Constantine has been documenting the implications of statelessness for the past six years, exposing the impact that the denial of citizenship has on different ethnic minorities around the world. His work emphasizes how citizenship is being used as a tool by governments to disenfranchise particular groups of people, and the implications that statelessness has not only for individual security but also international stability.
