Kadarudin ., S.M. Noor, Irwansyah ., Abdul Maasba Magassing


The state has a responsibility to protect its citizens, if the government does not want or is unable to protect their citizens, these citizens can at any time experience serious violations of their rights, so that individuals are forced to leave their homes, even their families to seek safety in other countries (become an international refugee). Because clearly the government of the country of origin of the refugees no longer protects their human rights, then the international community came in to ensure that these human rights were respected. Legal arrangements use international instruments, legal arrangements using regional instruments, and legal arrangements using national instruments. In the international context it is regulated in the 1951 Refugee Status Convention and the 1967 Refugee Status Protocol. At the regional level, there is no specific regulation governing international refugees. In Indonesia, the special regulation concerning international refugees is the Presidential Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia Number 125 Year 2016 on Handling of Refugees from Abroad. Second, the model of international refugee handling by UNHCR based on the framework and objectives of the organization is asylum, non-extradition, non refoulement, non-intervention, and partnership and community service.
