Subjective Safety Within Host Community

Refugees face many issues in the host country with some host communities. Many refugees are coming from disaster areas or war countries. That is why many of them have mental disorders and need to treat for these problems.

The personal security of refugees is an essential element of international protection. Unless the fundamental rights of refugees as human beings (to life, liberty, and security of person, to freedom from torture, from cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, from slavery, etc.) are safeguarded, other rights and benefits guaranteed by international instruments and legal principles, as well as by municipal law, are of little use.

Social and Economic Benefits for Host Community

The host community has many benefits from having refugees, these benefits can be social or economic benefits.

Social

There is a misconception that refugees come into a host country and subsist on benefits instead of working. Though not every country allows refugees to work, those who allow this see just how productive refugees are. Often unable to use their credentials in other countries, refugees are known for starting from the ground up, and they are effective at it. If host countries loosen restrictions and allow refugees to expand their job opportunities, it could significantly improve the economies in host countries.

Economic

The more people participating in a country’s economy, the better the economy becomes. Economic activity alone is one of the many benefits of taking in refugees. There is an initial investment required when allowing refugees into a country.

  • Language classes.
  • Healthcare. 
  • Sustenance.

Trust in Refugees and Organizations

There is an obvious problem between refugees and organizations and the social community.

Many people and refugees don’t trust the organization, whether local or international.
