Dividing Lines – China
Dividing Lines profiles some of the countless millions pushed against and over Burma’s borders following decades of civil war between ethnic armed groups and several military regimes. Many are displaced ethnic minorities that have been uprooted by conflict. They make up thousands of internally displaced persons in the country. Others have left the country only to languish for decades ‘warehoused’ in overcrowded Thai refugee camps. More numerous are economic refugees that have suffered from unemployment and extreme poverty in their homeland forcing them to seek work in Thailand, China or India.
