The Human Rights of Stateless Rohingya in Thailand

Wednesday, 5 February, 2014

This report is the first to document the situation of stateless Rohingya in Thailand. Based on original testimony from Rohingya individuals in Thailand and those who have travelled on to Malaysia, the report sheds new light on the human rights situation of this uniquely vulnerable community. ERT?s research found that the Rohingya experience constant threats to their liberty and security when entering, living, working and travelling in the country. ERT found evidence of arrests and deportations of the settled Rohingya population and deportation and ?push-backs? of those seeking to enter the country. ERT also found evidence of a number of violations affecting Rohingya children, contrary to Thailand?s obligations under the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
