Red Cross In Refugee Rehabilitation (Paperback)
Throughout the globe over the centuries, societies have welcomed frightened, weary strangers, the victims of persecution and violence. Yet even as people continue to flee from threats to their lives and freedom, Governments are, for many reasons, finding it increasingly difficult to reconcile their humanitarian impulses and obligations with their domestic needs and political realities. At the start of the 21st century, protecting refugees means maintaining solidarity with the world's most threatened, while finding answers to the challenges confronting the international system that was created to do just that. An increasing number of countries around the world have invited refugees to settle permanently on their territories. By offering naturalization, providing land and or permitting legal employment, Governments of both asylum countries' and resettlement countries have offered a lasting solution to the problems of those refugees who could not be assured protection in their home countries or in their country of first asylum. The legal framework that supports the international refugee protection regime was built by States. The objective of the study seeks to analyse the rehabilitation of the refugees in particular and the interests of the ICRC in the rehabilitation process. The attempt would be show how refugees have been rehabilitated in the post conflict situations in the war torn countries.
