Abstract

REFUGEE RECOGNITION UNDER THE UNITED STATES REFUGEE ACT OF 1980 By Birgitta Nylund. Jur. kand. (Uppsala) 1. Introduction Few human problems are more compelling, or more revealing of the troubled times in which we live, than the plight of millions of refugees around the world. There are few greater tests of the democratic and humanitarian ideals for which we stand, than how we respond to the needs of the world's displaced persons. And there is no more basic human rights issue than the protection of refugees. Refugees have become a worldwide phenomenon of countless men, women and children being forced to leave their homes for reasons as diverse as there are grounds for the violence and conflict among peoples and nations. Today this problem is greater and more pressing . than at any time before. What has been the reaction of the United States of America to this worldwide phenom- enon ? Although the United States accepted - during the period 1945 to early 1979 - nearly two million refugees, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) of 1952, which is the basic law governing immigration to the United States, did not specifically provide for the admission of refugees.
