Humanitarian paradoxes for 40 years? – OpEd – Eurasia Review

In Juliet Stevenson's thoughts, it’s actually troublesome to measure and map out the intensity of pain when he stated: “We have a legal and moral obligation to protect people who flee bombs, bullets and tyrants, and throughout history, these people have enriched our society. “Although Afghanistan is a nation's cemetery, it has not been possible to review the external intervention that would force its people to live under the guise of bombs, bullets, external intervention. After the first wave (1978), refugees have died for a better life, more than hell

Over the last four decades, given the many factors of external action, ethnic civil war and geopolitical models, the refugee wave of Afghanistan has not yet stopped. Nonetheless, some of the provisions of international refugee resettlement mechanisms, very own citizens, are used to the normal burden, and even host countries have taken them as an extra burden. The most important argument in this regard is that external intervention has become one of the most important factors in the Afghan refugee crisis. But when issues such as hosting, rehabilitation, the reintegration of Afghan refugees occur, the roles of countries responsible for the same crisis have not met their intentions and capabilities.

Afghan refugee: Reason and asylum

has a long history of Afghan refugee migration, but in the current situation, the same began with the Saur revolution. Researchers from Westermann (1999) and Bowersox (2004) have argued that Afghanistan has suffered political and strategic uncertainty since the 1970s. Against the background of PDPA genocide; and political oppression, in part, as a result of the external intervention of the Mujahedeen, the Taliban's autocratic government and, of course, developed countries during the years 1979 and 11 September led to the expulsion of Afghan citizens.

The Saur Revolution was one of the first factors that put the Afghan people under severe repression, which is not usually known until the end of the monarchy. In connection with the connection between the refugee and the revolution, Kaplan (1990) has argued that although Afghanistan had historically remained very poor and underdeveloped, it had never felt much political repression until 1978. The Soviet invasion led to the Soviet-Afghan war (1979-1989). With external support, local people turned to Mujahedeen. The Mujaheden fought against the Soviet army and the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan. The immediate war between the Mujahedo and the Soviet Army led to the killing of millions of civilians and made people refugees in the shadow of bombs and bullets. In addition, the new great game believed in the political upheaval of another author

Another wave of refugees began during the Civil War and the Taliban regime. By establishing the Taliban-dominated autocratic system, they control significant parts of the country. In an autocratic system, the Afghans began to experience violations of human rights and fundamental rights. The military conflict between the Taliban regime and the Northern Alliance led to the escape of refugees. The US-led war in Afghanistan after 11 September, due to the objectives of ending terrorism and fundamentalism, was rather a serious humanitarian crisis for local people. The deployment of ISAF turned into a warfield in Afghanistan, and civilians must live in the shadow of bombs and bullets on September 11 after the attack

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said "Afghanistan has remained the 32nd year of the world's largest refugee manufacturer." According to the Trend report (19 June 2019), some 70.8 million people have been forced violently worldwide, ie refugees (25.9 million), asylum seekers (3.5 million) and internally displaced (41.3%).

Afghan refugees have completed about 40 years (1979–2019) in Pakistan, Afghanistan's refugee flow year (1979), the Pakistani government founded the Afghan Ministry of Refugee Affairs in states and border regions. to the Ministry (SAFRON), which operates in Islamabad the High Representative to institutionalize the settlement of the Afghan refugees in each country. provincial capital except Sindh province. The most important tasks of these Commissioners are to coordinate the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to take care of Afghan refugees. Pakistan has lived for Afghan refugees, covering 1.5 million officially registered and about one million unregistered, 2.5 million.

Another major destination for Afghan refugees in Iran. Although Iran has received numerous refugees, it has been considered a supportive host country. Because of its religious closeness, Iran's initial response to the refugees was very positive and continued a more or less open door policy in the same direction. Farz and Farshid (2013) have argued that Iran had given the freedom to move or work in any city, as well as to grant subsidies in the gas, food and health sectors, etc. However, in the early 2000s, the Office for Foreign and Foreign Immigrants (BAFIA) granted refugees temporary stay card registration. In the same year, the Iranian government has also launched a joint return program with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees

Rights of Refugees

Citizens' human rights, fundamental rights and physical security must be provided by the host country. But for the same reasons, if the mother did not succeed, the citizen could be placed in the refugee class. Here is the role of the UNHCR, in which it assumes responsibility for ensuring that states are made aware of their actions in accordance with their obligations to protect the rights of refugees

. The UNHRC is not a supranational organization. It should not be replaced by government responsibility, but states have a duty to cooperate and coordinate with the UNHCR. Refugees have remained the worst victims of human rights, fundamental rights that had previously suffered terrible experiences in daily security-related life, and the worst part of life is to avoid basic needs, etc. Absence. Refugee Status (1951) – Article 33 refers to the rights of refugees, because “no State Party shall expel or return (return) a refugee in any way to the borders of areas where his life or freedom would threaten his race, religion, nationality, particular social group or political opinion. .

40 Years of Humanitarian Paradoxes for Refugees in Afghanistan

The first question is how Afghanistan has taken Afghan refugees on its own and in other host countries. How have these people got their basic needs? What is the role of external powers in the management of the human rights of refugees? According to the Plan-2018 report, the 'Return and Reintegration Response' ministry (Afghanistan), over 12 million have been internally and externally displaced over the last four decades, given the conflicts of socio-economic challenges. With regard to return, more than 7 million Afghans returned to their country of origin in Afghanistan, including 5.2 million assistants under the UNHCR's facilitated return program. Pakistan and Iran are the largest host countries, of which over 619,000 have settled alone in 2017 alone. Between 2002 and 2019, it has been reported that only 4.4 million Afghan refugees have been repatriated only from Pakistan.

In order to consolidate and facilitate the repatriation program, a meeting of the Sixth Quadrant Steering Committee was held in Islamabad (June 2005). 17, 2019), in which representatives (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and UNHCR) reiterated their commitment to the implementation of the Afghan refugee resolution strategy [SSAR]. Also at this meeting, the representatives agreed to continue the refugee repatriation program until 2021. The 6th Steering Group meeting was followed by another meeting of the Trial Committee (Pakistan, Afghanistan and UNHCR) on 18 June. 2019. The focus of this meeting was a joint 12-point statement aimed at safe and respectful restoration, the development of a framework for action and an action plan and the implementation of a comprehensive refugee response system.

The humanitarian view of Afghan refugees has become a very challenging task for the Afghan Government in the management of the refugee issues returned, such as the report -2018, the return and reintegration response. (Afghanistan), returnees have faced challenges such as lack of jobs, livelihoods, lack of land and housing, and these problems have limited the ability of returnees and refugees to return their families. In a unique interview (2003) with Al Jazeera, UNHCR Salvatore Lombardo had predicted in connection with Afghan refugees that “…. Because they are uncertain, many of them cannot return to the places they came from, ”the same notion remains valid within the current state of affairs.

The same report pertains to Iran. As one of many coverage temporary stories, Strandand, Suhrke, Harpviken (2014), the place they have claimed that Afghan refugees are holding a heavy burden, and now’s the time to go away Iran and return to Afghanistan. This means that there is a great concern in Iran, as a result of now Afghan refugees are involved in drug smuggling, violence and even the killing of the Iranian Border Guard at the worldwide border. Then again, Afghan refugees really feel that they not need or welcome, regardless of the necessity of primary wants, for obvious discrimination and harassment, the shortage of entry to greater schooling (2003), no compensation for dying. Disabled individuals, and so on.

Regardless of its close proximity and geocultural connections, Pakistan has remained widespread with Afghan refugees. In Pakistan, Afghan refugees regarded Pakistan as an financial and social burden. In accordance with a former Pakistani minister, Pakistan had spent about $ 200 billion on Afghan refugees over the previous 20 years, and now Pakistan is not capable of secure the monetary burden. Reid (2017) has said that the very best registered refugees host Pakistan (1,352,160) and Iran (951,142); adopted by Germany-46,292; Australia-20220; Sweden-16558; Italy-16033; Greece-11440; UK-9752; Switzerland-5697 and Turkey-3423. That signifies that the large ruser-rouser nations aren’t on this listing.

Lastly, it may be concluded that Afghan refugees have lived in over 70 nations. Over the past forty years, numerous Afghan refugees, or 95%, continued to host solely two Pakistan and Iran, as BBC Information announced. Though these nations' efforts to broaden their help beyond their financial and social capacities, the refugee crisis continues. The on a regular basis life of refugees avoids primary needs, schooling, well being, job opportunities, including violations of human rights and elementary rights, open discrimination, harassment, violence, and so forth. On this context, the lives of Afghan refugees could be thought-about a nightmare, worse, worse, hell is best than refugee camp / country. 19659002] Then again, nations that promote elementary and human rights, democracy, interference, unity, honesty, sovereignty, and a nuclear-free world along with refugee rights believed that the primary answer to this drawback was to offer neighboring nations with safety and primary wants for Afghan refugees. What’s the paradox of the humanitarian disaster for Afghan refugees? What is the answer then? Afghanistan must perceive geological dangerous fashions. Afghanistan is split into Afghanistan. Let the Afghans minus a third get together to choose a roadmap for peace, prosperity and improvement.
