Abstract
IPU is the international organization of parliaments, that makes IPU the only
international organization in the world whose members consist of a national parliament from a
sovereign country. This makes the role and scope of IPU interesting to see, in this case its about
human rights violations during the civilan government in Myanmar. The civilan government
made the system of checks and balances to work, where the parliament was active again to
conduct surveillance of the government which had never occurred under its military regime. This
research gives a new color because so far the resolution of Rohingya-related cases has never
been done with a legislative approach.This research aims to explain the extent of the role of IPU
in dealing with human rights violation against the Rohingya in Myanmar under the civilian
government 2011-2016. The method used in this research is a qualitative method with the type of
analytical-descriptive research through literature. The results of this research are that IPU does
not have a big role in efforts to protect the human rights violation against the Rohingya in
Myanmar because of three main factors, namely: (1) IPU seems to be less aggressive and
limiting the scope of its activities, (2) Internal problems possessed by IPU, and (3) Internal
barriers resulting from domestic conditions in Myanmar.
