Refugees are people seeking for stability and security in their life which the government of their own country failed to provide them. In many countries refugees are still treated as illegal migrants and are not granted the protection that they need to pursue a secure life with dignity. Failing to protect asylum seekers is a threat to human security and this problem should be addressed in the public sphere. Thailand has adopted many waves of refugees from neighboring countries but refugees who seek asylum in Thailand have never had the protection they deserve from the Thai authorities. The case of the Lao Hmong is a very good example of this issue. This article addresses this problem from the perspective of the refugees themselves.
