One of the greatest human calamities that occurred in the first two decades of the 21st century was in Rakhine Myanmar and towards Rohingya Muslims. Ethnic cleansing, genocide, crimes against humanity, and any other title that is somehow a manifestation of human rights abuses were committed against Rohingya Muslims. The main question of this article is: what was the UN response to these catastrophes? The hypothesis of the paper, which was examined through a descriptive-analytical approach, is that the United Nations was satisfied only with regard to humanitarian catastrophes in Myanmar only by verbal comment, the issuance of statements, and ultimately, the issuance of letters of recommendation. However, it was expected that this organization would launch humanitarian intervention in Myanmar under the principle of international responsibility for protection. The UN’s behavioral shift comes from the pressure of the great powers. The findings of the article show that the UN’s treatment of human rights violations in different countries is subject to double standards. The most optimistic view is that the great powers are preventing the effective and independent functioning of the United Nations in dealing with human rights violations.
