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.
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.
