The UK supports UNHCR which is conducting a family registration process, including advice and legal support with whatever documents individuals have managed to retain. We continue to lobby the governments of both Burma and Bangladesh to protect and respect the human rights of those who have fled northern Rakhine and to facilitate the conditions for their safe, voluntary and dignified return.
