This report focuses on refugee flows connected with human rights abuses suffered by people because of their ethnic or national identity. It demonstrates that people usually only make the difficult decision to leave their homes under the most extreme circumstances - when they have been victimes of human rights violations or are sure they will soon become victims. It also looks at what happens to refugees when they do flee and how issues of ethnicity and identity can affect their treatment.
