Ad Hoc and Inadequate
Thailand’s Treatment of Refugees and Asylum Seekers

SEPTEMBER 13, 2012
This 143-page report finds that Thai refugee policies are not grounded in law and cause refugees of all nationalities to be exploited and unnecessarily detained and deported. The report focuses on the plight of Burmese refugees, the largest current refugee group in Thailand. It examines treatment and conditions of both Burmese refugees inside the camps on the Thai-Burma border and Burmese outside the camps, who are not officially recognized as refugees. The report also looks at the impact of political changes in Burma on the prospects for repatriation and the obstacles to resolving this protracted refugee situation.

disagree on Mr Frelick 's view. He should point his finger to Burmese government instead of Thailand and investors from developed countries definitely!
