This short documentary film presents refugees’opinions about their return to Burma from camps on the Thai border where they have lived for decades. With reforms beginning to be implemented in Burma in the last year and a half, the return of these refugees is already being discussed and prepared at a high level between the governments of Burma and Thailand and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

History has provided repeated warnings of the potential dangers of planning a massive repatriation of refugees without adequate consultations and feedback from the affected communities. Repatriation without the inputs and consent of the refugees could exacerbate underlying conflicts, causing renewed strife which in turn can lead to further flows of refugees seeking asylum. “Nothing About Us Without Us” was filmed and directed by Timothy Syrota (www.timothysyrota.org).
