Thailand’s stateless: Generations without citizenship

In 2017, Thailand’s government promised to grant nationality to 80,000 stateless people, but hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, are still waiting.

As the world focuses on the plight of the stateless Rohingya in Myanmar, neighbouring Thailand is working towards its goal of eradicating statelessness by 2024.

More than 400,000 people without citizenship are registered with the Thai government – but the actual figure is thought to be more than three million.
