In January, 14 students and two faculty members traveled to Thailand to study human rights violations in Burma. The field-study, led by Assistant Professor of Political Science Dan Chong, visited the towns of Chiang Mai and Mae Sot and allowed students to gain first-hand experiences of the current situation, the culture and what different organizations are doing to help.


While in Mae Sot, participants visited a trash-dump site, which serves as the “homes” of Burmese citizens who have not attained refugee status and instead live as illegal immigrants.
