Congo often tripped in matters of security, a lot of wars and violence in the area. Because of the many natural resources of Congo have, many European countries which fighting to reclaim the area. Not just a war because of the struggle for power, but Congo is often experienced a civil war. In addition to the war in Congo, women in Congo often get violent, as well as physical violence and sexual abuse. This time the war occurred because of Congo does not allow refugees from the genocide in Rwanda to evacuate in the Congo, that's when armed groups are formed. Congo against the Tutsi and other groups to emerge. At this time the death toll reached 5 million people. Not long after Congo signed an agreement to make peace, but weak government and
The Congo civil war was a outrageous political fight that began just days following Belgium's granting of congolese independence in 1960. Going for four years the associated violence caused an at least 100,000 lives including the nation's first minister from patrice lumumba, an UN secretary Dag who was killed in a plane crash as he attempted a mediate the crisis escalating with the secession of the southernmost province of katanga the conflict concluded five years later with the dictatorship of joseph really wanted mobutu.
In the past, many incidents of genocide have occurred, like the Armenian genocide or the Rwandan genocide. While these incidents may seem unrelated to current times, similar incidents are starting to occur in many parts of the world and one such place is Congo. Many sources hint that the conflict that occurs in Congo is a genocide because many elements of genocide appear in the conflict like classification or dehumanization. While what they say has some truth in the sense that this conflict contains some element of genocide but, not enough elements are present to make it a genocide. Although many would believe that the conflict in Congo is a genocide, there is evidence of the conflict being a territorial and power dispute because some countries invading Congo want the resources, others want power, and the cause of the conflict in Congo is the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide.
The 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
A refugee is defined as an individual who has been forced to leave their country due to political or religious reasons, or due to threat of war or violence. There were 19.5 million refugees worldwide at the end of 2014, 14.4 million under the mandate of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), around 2.9 million more than in 2013. The other 5.1 million Palestinian refugees are registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). With the displacement of so many people, it is difficult to find countries willing to accept all the refugees. There are over 125 different countries that currently host refugees, and with this commitment comes the responsibility of ensuring these refugees have access to

As I sat on the back bench of a 12 passenger van with a coffee in my hand and my head on the back of the seat in front of me, I realized I had nothing left to give. All of energy was gone. I had come to the end
During the Holocaust Jews went on boats to other country's but they kept getting denied. The Fresno family did not go to that boat. St.Louis did get on that boat and sailed to many country's. While they were on the ship after a long time of sailing the ship most people started to feel queasy. They went to the U.S. and also Cuba, but both of them had denied them. That is one difference they had between them.
Corneas in the Congo Case Study I. Duties and Responsibilities: As the head of a small aid agency in Congo, our duty is to cater the refugee’s health dilemmas and concerns. We must attend to their needs by providing them the right health services suited for their condition. Like what is happening in the camp, the refugees are in need of cornea transplant because of the poor water condition which resulted to them being blind. Therefore, we must do any possible means of giving them enough corneas and adequate protection they need by figuring out how to eliminate the peculiar parasite in the water. Aside from that, incoming refugees would be possible knowing that civil war is happening at the moment so we also need to accommodate them
There is a possible solution. First the U.N.H.C.R can give these refugees a temporary home, food, and water. The U.N.H.C.R wants to help refugees and wants everyone to have a chance.
Introduction This is a tale of horror and tragedy in the Congo, beginning with the brutal and exploitative regime of King Leopold II of Belgium, and culminating with the downfall of one of Africa’s most influential figures, Patrice Lumumba. The Congo is but one example of the greater phenomenon of European occupation of Africa. The legacy of this period gives rise to persistent problems in the Congo and throughout Africa. Understanding the roots and causes of this event, as focused through the lense of the Congo, is the subject of this paper.
I am interested in an opportunity to intern with the African Refugee Development center. My goal is to help people meet their greatest challenges in their darkest times and empower them about change and opportunities. Now that I have finished my first degree, I am ready to broaden my range of volunteer work before I apply for a masters degree in psychology. I truly believe my purpose is to help others. I believe it would be an excellent opportunity to develop my interest in social change and psychology, a field I wish to study and pursue professionally in the future. If the African Refugee Development center has a need for a dedicated Intern, I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to aid.
Running Head: BHUTANESE REFUGEES IN UNITED STATES BHUTANESE REFUGEES IN UNITED STATES
I have chosen to investigate whether immigrants should interact with host peoples or establish marginal communities away from the culture of their destination. Egypt is grappling with these troubles today. The movement of Sudanese refugees to Egypt can be dated to the 19th century, when Sudan was part of Egypt,
In doing so, the essay synthesises a range of migration and international relations literature. Evolution of the international refugee protection regime In the aftermath of the WWII and the beginning of the Cold War tensions, the UNHCR began its mandate of addressing the issues of refugees as defined by the 1951 Geneva Convention with thirty-three staff and a $30,000 budget (Feller, 2001:131). Reflecting post-colonial European hegemonic structure and ignoring the upheavals of decolonisation in the ‘Third World,’ geographic and temporal limitations were embedded within the definition of a refugee. The convention recognises persons displaced before the first of January 1951 within the European geographical region (Nygh, 2000 and Loescher et al., 2008). Thus, the mandate of the UNHCR was apparently limited to the protection of refugees displaced before the drafting of the 1951 Geneva Convention and only within Europe. At this time, because of the strategic aims of the Cold War period and demand for labour, “refugees were welcomed noncitizens in many [European] countries” (Feller, 2001:129). In other words, the refugee regime was designed to provide geopolitical and economic responses to mass displacement due to Nazism and communism.
