Myanmar: “Fleeing My Whole Life”: Older People’s Experience of Conflict and Displacement in Myanmar.
This report examines older people’s experience of conflict and oppression in Myanmar. The report also analyses how and why humanitarian assistance has failed to meet many older people’s rights and needs, including related to health, sanitation, food, water, and participation. Accountability for the Myanmar military’s atrocities should include a focus on the specific crimes committed against older women and men, and draw on older people’s unique communal knowledge and memory. For their part, donor governments, UN agencies, and humanitarian organizations must better ensure that assistance is inclusive, non-discriminatory, and respects older people’s rights, including to dignity.
