The Chin Refugee Committee will produce a case study report about problems faced by Chin refugees living in Delhi, such as sexual and physical assault, discrimination, and exploitation. This report will be printed and delivered to the Government of India, the UNHCR, NGOs, embassies, and others to raise awareness and to facilitate future advocacy work. The final product will be presented to the public at a press conference.

Four people at CRC will conduct interviews with refugees living in Delhi. They will be assisted by the following organizations: The Other Media, Jesuit Refugee Service, South Asia Human Rights Documentation Centre and Mizzima News Agency.

You can help by contributing to the costs of preparing the case study, including conducting the interviewers, analyzing the data and writing the report, as well as distributing it and holding a press conference.

Progress Update

October 2011: The study is printed and can be downloaded as PDF at the Burma Center Prague's database of reports.


Researchers conducted one-on-one interviews between August 2011 and September 2011 in Delhi. Interviews were conducted and recorded in writing in the various Chin dialects. A total of 35 cases were studied, and are included in this report. It was not possible to fully present all of the various problems faced by Chin refugees in Delhi, but the 114-page report gives an overview of the hardships they face as well as recommendations on how to improve the situation.

The report, called “Lives of Chin Refugees in Delhi: Case Studies” was released at a press conference held in on October 5, 2011 in Vikaspuri, New Delhi.

Words from the Microgrant Recipient

“We express our deep gratitude to our Chin friends for making this report a reality by sharing their stories and experiences. Their desire to make the people around be aware and concerned about their situation by sharing their painful experiences so that others do not go through what they went through has been a great sacrifice.

Our sincere gratitude to Burma Centre Prague for their financial support to make this report possible. Their constant encouragement and feedback are greatly appreciated.”
