Abstract

The existence of refugees in Indonesia requires serious attention. Social conflict can arise due to psychological pressures as people who are not allowed to work when they need the cost of living, should not go to formal school even though the provision of science is expected changing the future, health services are only obtained from NGOs partners UNHCR, also prohibited owning property. This is done by the Indonesian government in order to protect and prioritize the rights of its citizens over foreign nationals. However, as a country that signed The Declaration on Human Rights (although it did not ratify the 1951 Convention and the 1967 Protocol on the Status of Refugees), Indonesia has a moral obligation to help fellow human beings by providing temporary shelter and life support which is certainly not permanent and far from sufficient. The active role from the Security Council of United Nations to immediately realize peace in war conflict areas is the main solution, rather than simply waiting for third countries to raise quotas to accept refugees.
