Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on international and mainly pan-European standards as they developed, concerning temporary protection, leaving aside, as much as possible, the interrelated subject of solidarity and burden sharing. Officials of the UNHCR would have clearly preferred if, during the early 1990s, European refugee hosting countries would have granted Convention-based protection to those persons who fled from former Yugoslavia. Basic elements of temporary protection were also proposed by the UNHCR such as admission to safety in the country of refuge, respect for basic human rights in accordance with EXCOM Conclusion 22, and protection against refoulement. The list of "main and disputed issues" began with the situation in the country of origin which justifies temporary protection measures, and continued, in the third place, with the scope of beneficiaries which had to correspond with the reasons of flight.
