The principle of equality and non-discrimination as spelled out in international refugee and human rights law plays a fundamental role in the guarantee of social and economic rights to refugees. Under the refugee law, Article 3 of the 1951 Refugee Convention provides that: “The Contracting States shall apply the provisions of this Convention to refugees without discrimination as to race, religion or country of origin.” From above it is clear that Article 3 of the Convention forbids discrimination only to the extent it is premised on race, religion or country of origin. However, the Preamble to the Convention makes a reference to the UN Charter and also to the UDHR as having affirmed “the principle that human beings shall enjoy fundamental rights and freedoms without discrimination” and the expression by the UN of, “its profound concern for refugees” having “endeavoured to assure refugees the widest possible exercise of these fundamental rights and freedoms”. Consequently, the 1951 Refugee Convention has its roots within the broad contours of the international human rights law framework. Accordingly, the rights enumerated in several international human rights instruments, given that they apply to all people irrespective of status, must apply equally to refugees.

It is important to know what the population the counselor will be working to see if the research will be effective if there will be any barriers for the client. The responsibility of the counselor is to collect the proper pre and post-test of the client to show a difference when they first started therapy when they finished.
Mrs. Hopkins, I cannot bear with your euphemistic assertion of ‘I will remind them there is exceptional dignity in defending your own country’. Yes, I fervently agree that these people should be protecting their own country in some extent as it is their country. However, your prejudiced view of these people throughout the article (including the quote I just embedded) creates negative imagery of the refugee and asylum seekers. Clearly, you have not thought from refugees’ point of view from your bigoted viewpoint towards these people. Did you think these people wanted to leave their country?
Good morning Mrs/Mr ....... and my fellow students, I'm alan sajeev and today I'll will persuading you as to why asylum seekers should not be allowed into the country. Firstly, under the United Nations refugee convention, asylum seekers are allowed to exercise their right and as Australia is a signatory of this convention they are allowed to seeK asylum in our country. but think of the amount of time, effort and money would be needed to complete this task. Yes we could be like Germany and give them a home but look what has happened. Just
This is a policy that is pigeonholed by the liberal admission of refugees who are then awarded full socio-economic rights and are voluntarily repatriated to their countries only when conditions are favourable. Thus many migrants are bestowed refugee status minus the UN Convention, Protocols and other International instruments’ scrutiny that govern them. they would undergo under the UN Convention and Protocol and other international instruments that govern refugees. This, especially with the emergence of Al-Shabaab insurgency in the Horn of Africa, has exposed Kenya to security threats from the militia men. Thus with the current security threat, there is a shift in policy where refugees' freedom of movement and engagement in self-reliance activities is restricted.
Rights of Refugees Abstract: India continues in receiving refugees in spite of its overpopulation where millions of people are below poverty line and are debarred from basic amenities.

The word Refugee has been defined in 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.

Alterations proposed by different individuals from parliament in the administration greater part party and also the restriction would change the purported need system to permit all refuge seekers to stay in France legitimately until a definite choice is presented in the defense. While refuge seekers can claim a negative choice to the autonomous National Court of Asylum, the last judge of shelter applications, the haven seekers can be sent back to their nation of root whenever after the underlying survey. Yet, since June 2007, the court has declined to consider offers for refuge seekers who have been sent back to their nations of origin. "Consistently the haven court awards security to a huge number of individuals who were at first rejected by the evacuee office". In 2009, the National Court of Asylum (CNDA) conceded shelter to more than 5,000 individuals who had been rejected by the National Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons (OFPRA).
Some other writers say that fugitives should be handed over to the police and asylum should be granted only on humanitarian grounds in case where there is extreme danger to life of the individuals seeking asylum. The Havana Convention of 1928 also prohibits grant of asylum on warships to persons accused of or condemned for crime, subject to
Article 11.1 of the Covenant (UN General Assembly, 1966) proclaimed ‘the right of everyone to an adequate standard of living for himself and his family, including food’, and Article 11.2 obligates State Parties to adopt measures and programmes for the ‘fundamental right to freedom from hunger and malnutrition’ (ibid). Under the ICESCR, State Parties are obliged to engage all appropriate measures, to the maximum of available resources, to progressively achieve the right to food for all. The right to food, in fact, imposes three obligations on State Parties (CESCR, 1999): a) they must respect existing access to food by not limiting such access to anyone; b) they must protect people from third parties (such as individuals, groups, private companies) which prevent the access to food; c) they must fulfil, which means both facilitate access to food (by strengthening people’s food security) and provide it (only whenever an individual or group is unable to enjoy the
Thus, the foundation of government has two main pillars- Protecting and Providing. 5.1- Protecting the Vulnerable: International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies defines Vulnerability as the decreased capacity of an individual or a group to forecast, cope with, resist and recover from the impact of any natural or man-made hazard. It further states that vulnerability can also arise if people are isolated, insecure, and defenseless in the situation of risk, shock, and stress. 5.1.1- Border People as Vulnerable People: The people living on borders of Jammu and Kashmir are vulnerable as a group because they are helpless and have no capacity to control the situation. They cannot anticipate when the cross-border firing may start.
