Camp Committees are the administrative and management bodies of the refugee camps.

They coordinate the day-to-day running of a camp and its services, in collaboration with local MOI officials, and they provide the main link between the camp population and NGOs, UNHCR and local Thai authorities.

CC structures are made up of elected representatives from within the camp population, with committees operating at the central, zone (if applicable) and section level.

CC elections occur every three years. Minor variations exist between camps, but all elections follow a democratic methodology and include provision for a minimum quota of five females on each committee.
