Languages of publication



The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to the often phenomenon of refugees resorted to violence. Refugee-warriors who defy the stereotype of passive inmate refugee camps. The reason for their appearance are always the bad conditions in the camps or even the very existence of them, where the so-called culture of resistance and new identity of nations in exile born. Therefore, international actions for security should also cover general change in the refugee protection policy. Permissions to self settle should definitely replace the policy of concentration of refugees in the camps.
