The Royal Thai Government (RTG), together with international agencies and non-governmental organizations, as well as government and private donors, have a long tradition of working together to address the protection, assistance and durable solutions needs of successive influxes of refugees from Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar and beyond. UNHCR has been present in Thailand since 1975, and won its second Nobel Peace Prize in 1981 in part for its humanitarian and non-political efforts in South East Asia arising from the “boat people” crisis which impacted not only Thailand but the entire region. At present, Thailand continues to host some 99,000 refugees from Myanmar in the nine RTG run Temporary Shelters on the Thai/Myanmar border, in addition to 7000 urban refugees and asylum seekers from over 45 countries, and 490,000 persons registered by the RTG as stateless.
