Promising Practices In ATD: Ideas For Strengthening Protection For Children In Thailand

March 31, 2022

Through this research we seek to provide further support to the Royal Thai government, civil society, and other stakeholders in strengthening laws, policies, and practices to better protect children and their families in the context of migration. We begin by summarising global legal standards and principles that require an end to the use of immigration detention. We also outline the fundamental components of rights-based ATD for children and families, providing examples of promising practices for each of these components that may be of particular interest in the Thai context. Through this research, and the recommendations included herein, we hope to encourage further thinking in Thailand on how to best address gaps in the ATD MOU and SOPs, and ways in which these global promising practices could potentially be adapted to the Thai context.
