Everyone knows small amounts about the refugee crisis in the Middle East, however minimal people understand or know about the refugee crisis in Africa and how it started. The DRC is a difficult country and conflict to understand so here is a brief summary of it to help broaden your knowledge.

Iraq | Human Rights Watch | Go Back To where You Came From | Scoop.it
Human rights conditions in Iraq have crumbled as militias, government forces and “popular mobilization committees” intensified their fight against the extremist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS), along with air strikes from an international coalition. The fighting has displaced hundreds of thousands, leaving Iraq with more than 2 million internally displaced persons. ISIS has committed numerous atrocities, including suicide attacks in civilian areas, summary executions, sexual assault and forced marriage, and the killings of religious and ethnic minorities. Iraqi security forces, militias and popular mobilization committees continue to carry out attacks on civilians, including massacres, kidnapping and summary executions with impunity; and are responsible for arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances, and torture.

Is there a front door, and are 'boat people' jumping the queue?

Is there a front door, and are 'boat people' jumping the queue? | Go Back To where You Came From | Scoop.it
Some Australians say asylum seekers who arrive by boat are "jumping the queue" by not coming to Australia through approved channels. Australian politicians, including former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, have said Australia's refugee and humanitarian program is the “front door” that refugees and asylum seekers must use.

Democratic Republic of Congo | Human Rights Watch

Democratic Republic of Congo | Human Rights Watch | Go Back To where You Came From | Scoop.it
Political tensions have risen throughout the Democratic Republic of Congo, as political and religious leaders, activists, students, and others have spoken out against proposed changes to Congo’s constitution and other proposals that would allow President Joseph Kabila to stay in power for longer than the two consecutive terms currently permitted. Government authorities have sought to silence dissent with threats, violence, and arbitrary arrests. In eastern Congo, dozens of armed groups remain active. Many of their commanders lead forces that have been responsible for numerous war crimes for which few have been held accountable. Congolese army soldiers have also been responsible for abuses against the civilian population they are meant to protect.
