This article aims to critically examine the Rohingya minority crisis in international law. This includes international law of refugees, migrants, and stateless persons relating to their status and protection. A literature survey of the ‘Scopus’ and ‘Google Scholar’ databases was conducted to identify qualifying published studies. Based on the literature surveyed, this article argues that there is a conspicuous gap in the existing literature in properly addressing the Rohingya at least in terms of inscribing their status and protection. The article further contends that any crystallisation of the relevant theoretical framework of international law in this connection may be helpful in ascribing specific status, as well as protection apparatus for the Rohingya. In this respect, the article not only identifies the methodological limitations of the surveyed studies, but also offers recommendations for further survey.
