CHALLENGES THAT REFUGEES FACE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM2 Introduction Under international law, a refugee is a person who has fled from his/ her country as a result of an assault regarding their political opinion, race, and membership to a particular social group, religion, nationality or due to the breakup of war. The person is an asylum seeker in another country, and they are not willing to get back to their country due to fear of persecution. Majority of the refugees who migrate to Europe are from the war-ravaged countries where they suffer from conflict and violence. These conflicts which result to war are as a result of high levels of poverty, poor governance, inequality in the distribution of resources, political leadership wrangles and insecurity. Millions of people in Syria are suffering from war and are in need of humanitarian assistance while others have already fled and are away from their country. Also in countries such as Somalia, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, Nigeria, Mali and Afghanistan, there has the existence of conflicts that have resulted to the threatening of lives of millions of people which has led to most of them immigrating to Europe in search of security as well as safety. It is a responsibility of every nation to provide hospitality to the refugees once they come into that nation due to the factors mentioned above. However, as a result of the alarming rate increase of the refugees in the European countries, some measures are being put to limit their number such as the issuance of citizenship to the refugees as well increased period to the publication of the grant of an individual to be an asylum.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
