International Relations in Europe Lecture 33
Lecture 33: Push and Pull Factors
Push Factors:
o Security concerns - refugees and asylum seekers.
The Geneva Conventions on Asylum.
The UNHCR decides upon the definition of “refugees”.
o Periodically, there are crises which provide a steady flow of refugees.
In 1956, there were thousands of people moving from Russia to Austria and
Germany.
Another uprising in Czechoslovakia (Prague Spring) had more refugees moving
from their home country.
Sri Lankan Civil War had a lot of people applying for refugee status.
The Yugoslavian crisis produced about 800,000 refugees.
o But people don’t usually like moving due to profession issues, linguistic barriers or
difference in benefits given to citizens.
o Relative poverty.
o Environmental factors/ natural disasters.
For example, in Bangladesh, the Bay of Bengal causes severe oceanic disasters
and storms which have led to large number of deaths.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
