Thailand Migration Report 2014
The Thailand Migration Report 2014 is the fourth in a series dating back to 2005, and the product of a collaborative effort between member agencies of the United Nations Thematic Working Group on Migration in Thailand. As a country of origin, transit and destination for large numbers of migrants from across the region and throughout the globe, Thailand migration flows are dynamic and complex. In the context of a rapidly evolving region – including the prospect of large numbers of migrant workers and displaced persons from Myanmar returning to their country of origin in the future, and with the initiation of the ASEAN Community around the corner in 2015 – Thailand’s ability to effectively manage migration at this critical juncture will have lasting impacts on its growth and development in the years to come. The report includes a contribution by UN Women on migrant domestic workers in Thailand.
