AKHP Public Lecture, Almaty: Introduction to the International Law on Refugees, and Protection of Refugees in the Republic of Kazakhstan
The modern refugee law should be looked at from the viewpoint of a broader global context – the context, where it first appeared and began to evolve. In the early 20th century, the international community encountered the problem of refugees, and for humanitarian reasons, took on the role to provide refugees with protection and assistance. The model of international response with respect to protection of refugees was first established by the League of Nations, and evolved into a number of international treaties in this sphere. The failure to successfully address the issue of refugees after the Second World War entailed the need to develop a new international document to define legal status of refugees.
