Voices of Refugees – Situation of Burma’s Refugees Along the Thailand-Burma Border

By Burma Partnership and Burma Link  •  April 27, 2015

Voices of RefugeesThe joint briefing paper by Burma Link and Burma Partnership, Voices of Refugees – Situation of Burma’s Refugees Along the Thailand-Burma Border, which was published online on 27 April 2015, highlights how the voices of refugees continue to be neglected in Burma’s reform process.

The briefing paper was initially launched and presented by Soe Aung at the most recently convened Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Civil Society Conference/ASEAN Peoples’ Forum 2015 in Malaysia, which took place between 22-24 April 2015.

By addressing diverse refugees’ concerns over the possibility of premature repatriation plans, ongoing armed conflict and displacement in Burma, steady decrease in funding in the camps coupled with recent enforced restriction on movement that are threatening their livelihood, the paper conveys the need for all actors to ensure meaningful and full participation of refugees and diverse Community Based Organizations working closely with their community in the planning and preparedness of their eventual return.
