0:12 PM, 24 Jan 2019 - 0:12 PM, 25 Jan 2019, Boole Library Foyer 24-25 January, all day

A walk through the persecutions of Rohingya in Burma and the situations of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

The exhibition is the first of a kind, which is created by the members of resettled Rohingya refugees in Ireland. It was launched by Lord Mayor of Dublin at the Mansion House, and also unveiled by former Irish President Mary Robinson in Maynooth. It is now currently exhibited at Carlow College, St. Patrick's. It has already been displayed many parts of Ireland including the North, except the Southwest coast.

The exhibition is to highlight the extent of Rohingya refugee crisis during the 2017-18 Rohingya exodus. It is also to highlight the integration of Rohingya community in Ireland, which has widely received positive responses from the local communities at the time when people increasingly perceive refugees resettlement programmes in negative perspectives, as many comments are circulated this week after the announcement of resettlement of 22 Syrian families in Ireland.
