Excluding refugees from the right to work as private security providers simply because they are refugees will inevitably foster a climate of xenophobia which will be harmful to refugees and inconsistent with the overall vision of our Constitution. As a group that is by definition vulnerable, the impact of discrimination of this sort can be damaging in a significant way. In reaching this conclusion it is important to bear in mind that it is not only the social stigma which may result from such discrimination, but also the material impact that it may have on refugees.
To all Christian readers (and those who celebrate Christmas for other reasons) hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks to all the contributors who made this Blog lively, at times challenging but (I hope) seldom boring. I leave you with the most camp and cheesy Christmas song I could find. Enjoy!BACK TO TOP
