Former Labour Party minister Chris Carter left New Zealand in 2011 for a role with the UN in Afghanistan. He's now working in Myanmar and for the past two years he has been leading all UN Agencies operating in Rakhine state, the most troubled region of Myanmar, which contains 90% of the oppressed Muslim Rohingya minority. He's been back home for a brief break and talked to Wallace Chapman about the complex politics involved in solving the crisis as the Rohingya continue to flee Myanmar for Bangladesh, with stories of human rights abuses.
