This summary document addresses youth migrants in Thailand. Due to its geographic location, Thailand is a regional hub and magnet for transiting and incoming migrant workers. This report finds undocumented migrants in Thailand to be characterized as an exploited workforce suffering from many kinds of oppression: debt bondage, forced labour, inhospitable work and living conditions, fear of harassment, arrest or deportation.

The objectives of this research were to study the qualities, characteristics, competencies and resilience that independent child migrants develop, acquire and utilize in the face of risk and adversity; and to analyse how children perceive their own vulnerability to the risks and hazards of independent migration.

This document is a summary of a larger PhD study of the author.
