"Refugees International therefore recommends that: - The Royal Thai Government grant citizenship to children born in Thailand and the Government of Burma grant citizenship to Burmese children who return without having obtained Thai citizenship. - The Royal Thai Government grant refugee status to all the legitimate asylum seekers. - The Royal Thai Government allow international organizations, especially the UNHCR and UNICEF, to provide full assistance to all refugees, asylum seekers, and stateless persons, especially children. - UNHCR and UNICEF continue to press the Royal Thai Government on the importance of providing stateless children access to education, health care, and adequate nutrition." - Publisher's description
