I always assumed the logical reason for the 1951 Convention requiring asylum seekers to register in the first safe country was so populations with their own unique cultural identities weren’t permanently displaced, dispersed and lost from their homelands and the international community did not inadvertently become complicit in helping a rogue government drive out their own peoples.
I thought the people who had written the convention drew from experiences of WW2 and knew a thing or two about the subject. Today what I assumed were good global principles for a global convention have all been forgotten or twisted and have been replaced by self-interest and £ signs.
