The World Health Organization defines a refugee as “someone who fears being persecuted” because of their “race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion” (WHO). Refugees leave their home countries and are unable to return to their homes because they may not be protected by their home countries. The fear that the refugees face drives them to take the unsafe and harsh journey in order to get to safety. Many refugees come from war-torn countries that may face the dangers of the wars occurring if they continue to stay in their home countries. The refugees may end up leaving the country to work and be able to support themselves and their families.
A refugee is a person who was forced to leave their country. Whether it be from warfare or natural disaster, their homes are no longer safe to live in, so they need to relocate elsewhere. Once someone sets foot on the journey of becoming a refugee, they become vulnerable and dependent with no sense of what the future will bring. In an attempt to accommodate them, first world countries with the resources necessary to assist these refugees, are struggling to determine whether or not they should step-in and help. Some argue that taking them in could come with excessive consequences, while others believe they could be assets. Although there may be a few consequences, they are outweighed by the benefits and undeniable severity of the situation.
The United Nations approach on the treatment of refugees is as follows. the Convention relating to the status of Refugees 1967 Protocol defines who a refugee is and explains what Rights countries should afford to refugees. A refugee is a person who is outside of their own country and is unable or unwilling to return due to a well-founded fear of being persecuted because of their; race, religion, nationality, membership of a group or political
While it is common to hear about ‘migrants and refugees’, it is important to recognise that the two terms refer to very different groups of people. While both groups have effectively moved from one country to another, the circumstances leading up to that move are markedly different for each group.
According to UNHCR, a refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so. War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries. When people flee their own country, and seek sanctuary in another country, they apply for asylum – the right to be recognized as a refugee and receive legal protection and material assistance. An asylum seeker must demonstrate that his or her fear of persecution in his or her home country is
In the final draft I will expand on each of the issues, by looking into more specific examples of both what different European countries are doing policy wise, as well as what the sentiment is among the refugees in the different areas of Europe. To fully be able to understand the conditions the refugees are facing I will be using other scholars ethnography work; One of those works being Katerina Rozakou’s piece regarding the management of refugees in Greece. As a result of that knowledge I will be able to come to an accurate conclusion as to what course of action should be taken in Europe as a whole, to deal with this ongoing
refugees are placed in urban areas with extreme poverty caused by the problems, such as low-quality education, unstable neighborhoods, and high amounts of violence in the neighborhoods. Being placed in the urban areas this might lead them discriminated.
Through out the world and over the centuries, societies have welcomed frightened, weary strangers, the victims of persecution and violence. This humanitarian tradition of offering sanctuary is often now played on the television screens across the globe as war and large-scale persecution produce millions of refugees and internally displaced persons. At the start of 21st century, protecting refugees means maintaining solidarity with the worlds most threatened, while finding answers tot eh challenges confronting the international system that was created to do just that.
The article is from the Human Rights Commission, it talks about what a refugee is and what an asylum seeker is. An asylum seeker is a person who has fled their own
Refugees have suffered so many times, they have gone through harsh obstacles just to reach their host country. They deserve a chance to live in a safer environment while their homeland gets fixed/better. While the refugee’s are trying to get to their host country many are hurt. The refugee’s should have a chance to feel safe. Many aren’t treated fairly in their home place, so therefore they seek for help from other countries.
Refugees are people who flee their home countries because it is unsafe (Gevert 1). Ha and her family had to become refugees after the city of Saigon became unstable. Many refugees from Saigon including Ha and her family had to abandon everything they knew back in Vietnam because they had to live in fear of getting imprisoned, tortured, or killed. Moving to a new country comes with many challenges and all refugees have to learn how to comply and function in a new country. Refugees have to overcome many challenges such as discrimination and racism just like Ha and her family did in Thanhha Lai’s Inside Out and Back Again, but after a while refugees adapt to their new country.
The refugee crisis is a hotly debated and controversial topic all over the globe relevant to today. The rising number of refugees arriving in the European Union has significantly increased throughout the past few years. The controversy comes from not the refugees themselves, but from where they are emigrating from. Coming from extremely hostile and dangerous countries operated by the Islamic State militants, there is a sense of hysteria from the opposing side saying that there are risks that need to be factored in when accepting such a large amount of people from places where there are high concentrations of terrorism into their home countries. On the other side of the argument, the advocates for refugees are proclaiming that as humans we have moral obligations to give the quintessential helping hand to humans whenever one is in need, regardless of their situation or circumstances. Through social activism these proponents are seeking to
Refugees are innocent human beings who have been forced to escape their homes. As they face mental, physical and emotional trauma, they face and confront astounding obstacles during their escape from their corrupted country.
First we need to distinguish the difference between immigrant and refugee. Many people use both of these terms interchangeable and to be honest they are not the same, although some people are both. An immigrant is someone who chose to leave their country. A refugee
Refugees are people who are running away from persecution and they go somewhere else to seek protection from another government. An example are somalis. They moved to Kenya since the war broke in the early 1990s. In Kenya most of the somali refugees live in the camps, the most known camps are Dadaab and Kakuma. Most refugees live in the camps to receive emergency food and medical aid. Some refugees are not able to go back to home because it is unsafe and they fear being killed or exploited when it comes to religion. Resettlement also impacts them in terms of their identity. If a refugee goes to another country it is most likely
