This study aims at finding a sustainable solution to the decades long Rohingya crisis. Since the second world war, the Myanmar military (Tatmadaw) and the extremist groups of people have been trying to evict the Rohingyas from the place they have been living from ancient times. The world has witnessed such crisis in many parts of the world. For the Rohingyas, suffering for over half a century, there have been efforts to find a permanent solution in light of the events and experiences at other places. However, traditional methods have proven ineffective in giving a community of more than one million people any opportunity to live with a national identity, a sense of dignity, and self-esteem. Several established mechanisms in operation in preserving human rights where states fail to protect its citizens have been futile. Meanwhile, those engaged in the study of the phenomenon consider various ways of resolving the crisis – sheltering the displaced people, acting on bilateral discussions between the parties, repatriation and rehabilitation, etc. This article, considering various issues, attempts at suggesting a permanent and viable solution by analyzing whether or not humanitarian intervention through the implementation of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) and Protected Return to Protected Homeland (PR2PH), the UN approved Independent Referendum in Myanmar could put an end to the crisis. The findings of the research are expected to present a sustainable solution to the Rohingya people, which would give them the power to decide their fate and help them to be self-dependent, dignified, freed and protected.
