This document aims to offer a snapshot of the diverse opinions and questions of the Rohingya community on the recently signed MOU between UNDP, UNHCR and the government of Myanmar, the smart card, returns and repatriation. The verification process is endorsed by the Government of Bangladesh and aims to replace the current MOHA and Family Counting cards with a new identity card (the smart card). This identity card will be used as the basis for receiving humanitarian assistance. The smart card is included in this analysis since some community members believe the card is closely related to their return to Myanmar; therefore, these issues must be seen as linked concerns of the community.
This snapshot was produced by Internews as part of the Common Service for Community Engagement and Accountability, which is delivered in consortium with BBC Media Action and Translators without Borders. The work is being delivered in partnership with IOM, the UN migration agency, and is funded by the UK Department for International Development. Some of the data was published in What Matters? issue 5.
