A refugee, to simply put it, is a person who is forced to leave their home country as they have either suffered or feared persecution, to flee a war or sometimes, escaping from natural disasters. Today, the increasing number of refugees has caught the attention of the globe as it hit 14.4 million at the end of 2014, which was a 2.7 million increase since 2013. The major countries that contributed to the number of refugees are from Afghanistan, Somalia and Syria, which contributed to more than 50% of the number of refugees. Also, children took up more than 50% of the figures, according to UNHCR. There are many factors contributing to the sharp increase in number of refugees.
For example, in the year 2011, the country received some 249,000 new immigrants, which was more than the number it received in 2010 (281,000). The two main cited reasons for this immigration are job search and education. Since 2008, the rate at which the country integrates foreign-born Canadian citizens in the labor force has been growing, same as for its citizens. About
Many people hope to become part of Canada’s idea of open arms, as, “the federal government is aiming to bring a total of 310,000 newcomers to Canada by 2018, …, the plan reflects a new multi-year approach to immigration planning that experts say will lead to better preparation and integration”(Scotti). The Canadian government focuses on getting to 310,000 in 2018, coming from a new way to approach immigration. Canada’s aging population has dropped from a ratio of 6.6 people per senior to 4.4 people per senior, and might even drop to 2.2 people per 1 senior. That is why Canada needs more people to cater towards the aging population. However, some officials may be holding off the whole Canadian approach to things.
In the UK James Cameron considers that his county has “a moral responsibility” to welcome the Syrian refugees, therefore, he has announced that they will accept 20.000 but just for a period of 5 year. Which in my opinion is a really short period of time, because after those years what will happen to all those refugees who won’t probably be able to go home again? I don’t really support or share Cameron’s government’s decisions, because they do not gave certainty and safety to those refugees in a long term. Germany has shown a great leadership and kindness in this situation, after announcing that they will embrace 800.000
Although Turkey faced many challenges in housing the Syrian refugees, they were able to successfully help all the refugees, providing them with medical care, tents, camps, food, clothes, and even toys for the children. Syrian refugees are not safe in the camps provided by the Arab
According to Laurence Peter’s article “Why is EU struggling with migrants and asylum?” published in BBC News in August 2015, the number of refugees in Germany this year is at about 800,000! I find that to be almost too many, but I also agree with Taylor on some levels. Of course, we should treat the immigrants with respect and respect their feelings, but I think it’s all becoming a bit excessive if we can’t even call them immigrants anymore. I think that we should maybe be more strict with the people we let in to our country, but also not too strict like in Australia. For example in Australia, they’ve made a campaign video against illegal refugees on youtube called “General Campbell 's message to people who travel illegally by boat to Australia” and was published September 2014.
Some medical tests/supplies and medicines not readily available are also provided to refugees in the New Delhi, where the majority of Persons of Concern live. c) Most refugees face financial problems and live in difficult conditions. UNHCR assiste them by providing subsistence allowance...... Along with its implementing partners, UNHCR assists refugees to become self reliant by offering livelihood support set services, including job placement, small business grants, language, computer and vocational
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.
This in turn led to the need of about 13 million Syrians to receive humanitarian assistance. To their avail, several countries such as some major European nations, whom have given the Syrian people a refuge in their land, especially Germany. Although the help that these countries have given to Syria has saved hundreds of Syrians, more countries are needed to provide refuge to the Syrians since these European countries are already reaching full capacity and will sadly, not be able to accept more refugees. This paper is addressed to the Swedish government to join the humanitarian effort that few countries are providing and kindly consider providing the devastated refugees with a refuge. First of all, Syrian refugees are a golden opportunity for Sweden on the economic scale.
People in the area lose their families and home. Huge group of refugees especially from Syria move to Europe looking for a new place to live. In 2016, there are 380 thousands refugees go through Mediterranean sea into Europe. In this group, there are lots of illegal immigrants. Compare to refugee, illegal immigrants went to another country for a better job or environment, but refugees do this because their life are threaten.
