    Refugee

    A refugee is a person who is outside their country of origin or habitual residence because they have suffered (or fear) persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or because they are a member of a persecuted ‘social group’ or because they are fleeing natural disaster. Such a person may be referred to as an ‘asylum seeker’ until recognized by the state where they make a claim.
