Migrants after the Military Coup – Summary of information concerning raids, deportation and returns of migrants currently happening in Thailand is available
Hundreds of thousands of Cambodian migrants in Thailand returned to Cambodia in June due to fears of a military crackdown on migrant workers after the Thai military took control of the country in a coup on 22 May.
There have been no similar reports of Burmese migrants returning to Burma, however, the military has also been raiding Burmese neighbourhoods across the country, with media reports of at least 1,000 arrests. There is little indication that the military is taking significant measures to stop the flow of migrant workers out of Thailand.
MMN has prepared a chronology of events and news reports on the raids, deportation and returns of migrants in Thailand since the military coup, available at on the Arrest, Detention and Deportation website at http://mekongmigration.org/add/?page_id=55
MMN will continue to update this chronology as the situation progresses.
Khmer Translation of the report “Restricted Rights: Migrant Workers in Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia” is now available!
MMN partners launched the report “Restricted Rights: Migrant Workers in Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia” in 2012, and the Khmer translation of the report is now available!
The report presents the findings from a series of in-depth interviews with migrant women in three ASEAN countries employed in the garment and electronic industry supply chains. The report commissioned by the War on Want, a UK based charity organisation, was carried out by the Asian Migrant Centre, in collaboration with the MAP Foundation, Legal Support for Children and Women (LSCW), Workers’ Hub for Change (WH4C), Burma Campaign – Malaysia and Mekong Migration Network (MMN).
