    • A.

      Someone who has left their home country to travel the world

    • B.

      Someone who has fled their country due to fear of persecution or conflict

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. Someone who has fled their country due to fear of persecution or conflict
    Explanation
    A refugee is defined as someone who has fled their country due to fear of persecution or conflict. This means that they have left their home country because they are in danger or at risk, either due to being persecuted for their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group, or because their country is experiencing a conflict or war. Refugees seek safety and protection in another country, often with the hope of eventually being able to return home when the situation improves.

  • 2. 

    A/an (something) is someone who has been forced to leave their homes, but not thier countries.

    Correct Answer
    IDP (internally displaced person)
    refugee
    Explanation
    An internally displaced person (IDP) is someone who has been forced to leave their homes due to conflict, natural disasters, or other reasons, but they have not crossed international borders. They remain within their own country. On the other hand, a refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their country due to persecution, war, or violence and seeks refuge in another country. In this case, both IDPs and refugees are individuals who have been displaced from their homes, but the key difference is that IDPs have not left their countries while refugees have crossed international borders.

    True or False:Legally, a refugee can be forced back to their home country.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Legally, a refugee cannot be forced back to their home country. The principle of non-refoulement, which is a fundamental principle of international refugee law, prohibits the return of a refugee to a country where their life or freedom would be at risk. This principle is enshrined in various international treaties, such as the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol. It is important to protect refugees and ensure their safety, which includes not forcing them to return to a place where they may face persecution or harm.

    Explanation
    The United Nations High Commission for Refugees became operational in 1951. This organization was established to protect and support refugees and to find durable solutions to their displacement. The year 1951 is significant because it marks the adoption of the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, which defined the rights and obligations of refugees and established the mandate of UNHCR. Since then, UNHCR has been working tirelessly to provide assistance and protection to millions of refugees around the world.
