Asia And The Pacific (2012)
Abstract:
The protection environment in the Asia-Pacific region remains fragile. Of the 45 countries and territories covered by the Bureau, only 20 have acceded to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. Central Asia and South West Asia are the best covered with six out of eight countries having acceded. However, most States in the region have a long history of hosting refugees. UNHCR supports refugee status determination (RSD) in all non-signatory States as well as in 13 of the 20 signatory countries in the region. In 2012, the region held some 8.4 million individuals of concern to UNHCR. Political developments in Myanmar raised hopes that comprehensive solutions could be found both for IDPs in the south-east and long-staying refugees in Thailand. However, the escalation of conflict in Kachin State and inter-communal violence in Rakhine State led to new waves of internal displacement and outflow of refugees by sea, with repercussions for neighbouring countries and countries further afield.
