The video discusses the global issue of forced displacement, focusing on refugees who have fled their homes due to war, violence, and persecution.

It explains the modern definition of a refugee, as established by the UN in response to mass displacements during the Second World War. Refugees are defined as individuals outside their country of nationality, unable to return home due to well-founded fears of persecution based on factors like race, religion, nationality, social group membership, or political opinion.

The video highlights that approximately half of the world's refugees are children, some unaccompanied, making them vulnerable to exploitation. It addresses the confusion between the terms "migrant" and "refugee" and the legal obligations of host countries toward refugees, emphasizing the principle of non-refoulement. It also touches on the challenges refugees face during their perilous journeys and their life in refugee camps.
