Kavita Shukla is an Advocate at Refugees International and a researcher on internally displaced persons and Burmese Refugees. Systematic and prolonged suffering of the Burmese people by the military junta has led to a forced migration crisis, with an influx of refugees to neighboring countries and internally displaced persons within Burma. The Burmese government has denied outside aid, even when Burma was hit by Cyclone Nargis. Little has been done to alleviate the suffering of the Burmese people despite the immediacy of the situation.
