People will continue to migrate for many years, and it is very important for world leaders to review the old tradition of prevention and protection which was set under the United Nations Higher Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that were built after World War II. Since then our world had changed a lot, but the approaches have remained the same in the interest of national security. If we do not set out to help refugees and migrants, we have sold our humanity and that is a very worrying phenomenon.
This is an attempt to lay out some basic facts and observations, devoid of the sometimes histrionic arguments being made.
Resettlement is a vital protection tool for refugees whose lives and liberty are at risk; a long term solution for refugees and an expression of solidarity with developing countries who host the majority of the world's refugees.
