Gould and Dalhousie Mainstreeting

OTTAWA - In 2019, The Gambia submitted an application against Myanmar to the ICJ, alleging violations of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and seeking provisional measures to protect the 600,000 Rohingya that remain in Myanmar. In a unanimous decision, the ICJ concluded that "there is a real and imminent risk" to the right of the Rohingya to be protected from acts of genocide. The ICJ has ordered Myanmar to take all measures within its power to ensure that Myanmar's military does not commit, or conspire to commit, further acts of genocide and the Myanmar government must report back to the Court within four months on the measures it has taken to implement the Court's order.
