What are refugee rights?
Refugees seek safety in another country when they experience a threat of persecution and because their own country is unwilling or unable to protect their fundamental rights. When faced with serious violations of their human rights, they have no choice but to leave their homes, their families and communities in order to survive.
By definition, refugees are not protected by their own governments. In lieu of State protection, the international community created key international and regional agreements to safeguard the rights of refugees.
The 1951 Refugee Convention, and its 1967 Protocol, is the only global legal instrument dealing with the status and rights of refugees, while regional agreements include the 1984 Cartagena Declaration and the 1969 OAU Refugee Convention in Africa.
The 1951 Refugee Convention defines refugees’ human rights, including the principle of non refoulement, stating that a refugee “should not be returned to a country where he or she faces serious threats to his or her life or freedom.” Other rights include the right to work, the right to freedom of movement, the right to housing, education, justice, and more.Let Us Help You
