Welcome to USCIRF

...on Burma

USCIRF’s report, “Burma: Religious Freedom and Related Human Rights Violations are Hindering Broader Reforms,” reflects findings from a Commissioner-level visit in August 2014.  In the report released in November, USCIRF urges the U.S. government to press Burma to permit humanitarian access to Rohingya Muslims and revise the Rakhine State Action Plan to ensure that Rohingya will not be denied citizenship.  USCIRF also urges the U.S. to press for the rights of all minority religious communities and for U.S. officials to use the term “Rohingya” in recognition of that community’s right to self-identify.  Additional recommendations can be found in the report.
