Leaders and governments around the world have labelled refugees as being a burden on their country either directly or indirectly. These leaders only see them as people who are trying to get into their country to escape the civil war, but fail to see that the refugees are also risking their lives in the process. At present, there are approximately 54.5 million refugees that are displaced, the largest refugee crisis the world has ever seen and they have nowhere to go. The question of doing the right thing and taking them in has been squashed due to various reasons and it appears to be that each country has adopted the ‘each man for himself’ policy by stating that it is their duty to only look after its citizens and no one else.

The Australian Human Rights Commission has raised concerns that the system of mandatory detention breaches Australia’s international human rights obligations. For instance, Australia has obligations under article 9(1) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to ensure that no one is subjected to arbitrary detention. However, many asylum seekers have been subjected to prolonged and indefinite detention under Australia’s mandatory detention laws. A Cambodian boy was detained for five and a half years. This can have devastating impacts including the deterioration of mental health as well as the loss of housing, income and position in society, employment and cultural norms. Theses immigration detention centres are often
Refugees , a population distinct from other immigrants, face a multitude of challenges integrating into their new home in Milwaukee. Language and cultural barriers are two main causes of misunderstandings and strife between newly arrived refugee immigrants with their neighbors. From 2002 – 2016, 4,249 refugees made Wisconsin their new home (Gordon, 2017). A vast majority, 8,774 or 65% of the resettled Wisconsin refugees have settled in Milwaukee County . Refugees arrive suffering from acute post-traumatic anxiety from camps where basic amenities and civility were rare. Their new home is culturally unfamiliar, cold, and far from their ancestors, all isolating experiences that further alienate them from their neighbors. There is a need to create
Immigrants have many differences and similarities. There are a few similarities while being a refugee or an immigrant. When immigrants or refugees come into a new country, they both look for menial jobs. These jobs don’t require much talking, which is good for them if they cannot speak the language of the country they are in. Another problem that they both share is the language barrier. When immigrants and refugees come into a new country, there is usually a language barrier. This means that the people of the new country speak a different language then the language in their home country. Lastly they both need homes.

The foundations for protecting refugees and migrants are a humane approach to human suffering and adherence to international humanitarian law. An improved screening and resettlement process would also improve the West's muddled response to today's displacement crisis.
Migrant workers- Migrant workers tend to experience language and cultural barriers which can cause many risks. They can have issues with understanding the OSH rules which can cause them danger. Cultural barriers are like poor awareness of the labour market; they may not be aware of their rights and find themselves in low-skilled job proving to be more hazardous to their health. Migrant workers are very often employed under temporary contracts, and are exposed to the risks related to these employment forms, such as less access to OSH trainings. Undocumented migrants are predominantly at risk, although, because of their situation, consistent data may be unavailable.
All through the world and throughout the hundreds of years, social orders have invited alarmed, tired outsiders, the casualties of abuse and brutality. This compassionate convention of offering haven is frequently now played out on TV screens over the globe as war and vast scale mistreatment produce a huge number of evacuees and inside dislodged persons. However even as individuals keep on fleeing from dangers to their lives and opportunity, governments are, for some reasons, discovering it progressively hard to accommodate their helpful motivations and commitments with their residential needs and political substances. Toward the begin of the 21st century, securing evacuees implies keeping up solidarity with the world's most undermined, while discovering answers to the difficulties defying the global framework that was made to do only that.

Migration and social security recently is being more concerned subject because it gives rise to fears of loss of state control in recent days. After the end of cold war refugees flows and internal migration increased.

So to understand a contemporary society’s forced migration a detailed analysis is must. That’s why many important research have started to develop an empirical study on forced migration. There is some major gaps in how cultural context is conceptualized in cultural psychology studies on immigrants (Ramaswami 2013).
