HELPING BHUTANESE PEOPLE INTEGRATE IN DENMARK

WHO WE ARE

Current/Former Stateless Quota Refugees From Bhutan Living in Denmark

Expelled by Bhutan during the 90s, we found refuge in Nepal for the next 20 years, surviving an inhospitable policy and statelessness. From 2007, the governments of Denmark, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United States started to host the Bhutanese refugees to provide a “Durable solution” to our problem. Among 900 of Bhutanese refugees resettled in Denmark most of us (890) are still stateless. 

As the UNHCR handpicked the most vulnerable group of people to be resettled in Denmark, we as a community do not have enough resources and ability to advocate for our-self. The mainstream Danish society has not heard enough about us; we are forgotten.

With the current anti-immigrant and anti-refugee sentiments in Denmark, it is almost impossible to talk about solving our real problem-the problem of statelessness. However, with passionate stories of Bhutanese people, and their genuine interest to integrate to the danish society, we want to promote mutual understanding to create an environment to help Bhutanese stateless refugees become the Danish nationals. With the current anti-immigrant and anti-refugee sentiments in Denmark, it is almost impossible to talk about solving the our real problem-the problem of statelessness.
