Abstract
This report uses Vedung’s critical analysis of ideas in analyzing the Fact Finding Missions (FFM) report on the situation in Rakhine state in Myanmar. The essay critically analyzes if the FFM commission has spent enough effort on explaining the complex situation and the political, cultural and religious aspects that undermines the conflict. The analysis suggests that the FFM report has some limitation in bringing a nuanced and objective view of the conflict and that there are facts that are not mentioned or nuanced in the report. This study shows the importance and necessity of critically review and discuss UN reports, as there is undoubtedly a risk of ignoring certain aspect of the conflict in order to highlight others.

This report uses Vedung’s critical analysis of ideas in analyzing the Fact Finding Missions (FFM) report on the situation in Rakhine state in Myanmar. The essay critically analyzes if the FFM commission has spent enough effort on explaining the complex situation and the political, cultural and religious aspects that undermines the conflict. The analysis suggests that the FFM report has some limitation in bringing a nuanced and objective view of the conflict and that there are facts that are not mentioned or nuanced in the report. This study shows the importance and necessity of critically review and discuss UN reports, as there is undoubtedly a risk of ignoring certain aspect of the conflict in order to highlight others.
This study starts with a description of the problem and the questions raised to the text, a historical background of the situation of the Muslim group called Rohingya in Rakhine state in Myanmar and how they have been treated by the military and the Myanmar government. The Rohingyas have experienced difficulties in obtaining citizenship since the enactment of the 1982 Citizenship Law in Burma. The study also spent significant time in explaining the history of human right and its impact on ethnic minorities rights to self-identification. (Less)
