They’re forced out from their country because of a political opinion, because of the religion, because of their race or nationality, or membership in a social group, those are all the elements that make up a refugee definition.
UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) has dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights, and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people around the world.
On this episode of foreign insight, we will have a talk with Mr. Thomas Vargas, UNHCR Representative in Indonesia.
