The Fallout Shelter

Comparable situation re: immigration

Three Alternatives

  • voluntary repatriation to their country of origin: best if politics allow (but often they don't)
  • local integration into the country they first flee to
    • drawbacks
      • poverty of host nations (for 12 million of the 15)
      • ethnic animosities within the country they flee to
  • resettlement: in richer more developed countries
    • for many refugees the difference between life & death
    • for many more the only hope for a decent existence

Current ex gratia approach
