The House of Commons granted the privilege to Suu Kyi in 2007, but her international reputation has since been tarnished by her refusal to call on the Burmese army to put an end to the atrocities committed against the Rohingya.
The wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen as well as Myanmar's genocide of the Rohingya Muslims highlight the need for international justice now more than ever. Is justice only possible when the conflict has a clear victor?
Nobel chief Lars Heikensten says Aung San Suu Kyi's actions are "regrettable" but she will keep her peace prize.
China voted against a move by the UN to set up a body to prepare evidence of human rights abuses in Myanmar and look into possible genocide in the country's western state of Rakhine.
The 47-member UN Human Rights Council has voted in favour of a resolution to set up a body to prepare evidence of international crimes and violations of international law committed in Myanmar since 2011.
In one year, over 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled their homes in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, but the weight of the international response to their persecution has been dubious.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina accused Myanmar of advertently delaying the return of more than 700,000 Rohingya who fled to refugee camps in Bangladesh after a bloody military campaign against the Muslim minority in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
The response is the army chief's first public reaction since a UN fact-finding mission urged the Security Council to refer Myanmar's top military brass to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
As China and the US vye for political and economic influence in several regions, the rivalry will inevitably turn into a clash. Which country is best placed to come out on top?
The UN says Rohingya Muslims have faced four of five prohibited acts defined as genocide at the hands of Myanmar's military. The findings were part of a final report released by UN investigators.
The international community has often proven incapable of dealing with state led crimes against humanity, and Myanmar could prove another missed milestone.
Myanmar's army is accused of mass rape, killings and setting fire to thousands of homes which led to the displacement of 700,000 Rohingya Muslims to neighbouring Bangladesh. The UN is recommending genocide charges be brought against top generals.
