The United Nations grants refugees with rights- with the right to work, to receive fair pay, to own property and to move freely. In many of Thailand’s camps, refugees are not given these freedoms. They are not able to leave the camps, find jobs and seek normal lives. Refugees are facing problems of refugee warehousing where they are denied their legal rights and get confined in camps for years, sometimes even decades. Most of the refugees worldwide are victims of refugee warehousing. About 7.4 million out of 12 million refugees have lived in refugee camps for over a decade. The US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, also known as USCRI is campaigning to end refugee warehousing.
