So, who exactly is a refugee?
A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their country to seek protection abroad from the threat of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion. When a refugee arrives in a new country, they are known as an asylum seeker until they are granted refugee status.
