The arrest, detention and deportation (ADD) of migrants in the Greater Mekong Subregion is widespread, and despite recent efforts by governments to regularise migrants and introduce new policies, the experiences of migrants show that abuse, corruption and disregard for human dignity continues unabated. ADD processes in Thailand and surrounding countries frequently run counter to international human rights standards, and the gulf between policies and practice leave migrants at risk of arrest, detention and deportation, regardless of their registration status.

MMN hopes that the resources provided here will strengthen advocacy efforts and contribute to growing pressure to end the human rights abuses that take place in the context of the arrest, detention and deportation of migrants.
