  • Asylum seekers: People who have left their own countries and have applied for refugee status in other countries and who are waiting to see if their application has been successful and they are able to stay.
  • Environmental refugees: People fleeing a natural or human-caused environmental disaster.
  • Internally Displaced Persons: People who, like refugees, have fled their homes due to persecution, war, violence, hunger, or other emergency but, unlike refugees, remain in their own country.
  • Migrants are people who move from their home to another place. This may be internal migration - movement within a country - or international migration where migrants leave their country to live in another country. Unlike refugees, migrants are free to return home if they wish to because, although they may be very poor, their lives are not in danger. These types of migrants are often called economic migrants.
  • Refugee status: a status awarded to anyone who is recognised as a legal refugee as described by the UN Refugee Convention.
