Según estos acuerdos, un refugiado (o en los casos en que los medios de base reprimidos han sido aplicados directa o ambientalmente al refugiado) es una persona que se encuentra fuera del territorio de su propio país (o lugar de residencia habitual si es apátrida) por temor a ser perseguido. jardines. Los motivos protegidos incluyen raza, casta, nacionalidad, religión, opiniones políticas y membresía y / o participación en cualquier grupo social o actividades sociales en particular. Presentar verdaderas víctimas de la persecución a su perseguidor es una violación particularmente odiosa de un principio llamado non-refoulement, parte de la Ley de las Naciones acostumbrada y trucial.
