The barbarism that individuals are just objects of International Law and only states are the subjects through which individuals can seek their human and international rights, is a concept of past and has no vindication now. This research paper revolves around the situation of stateless persons, asylum seekers, refugees, and internally displaced persons [“IDPs”] who stay in a constantly threatening atmosphere, are devoid of human rights, and struggle hard for a stable life. Delving deep into refugee law, this paper will underline that the rights of refugees and IDPs are robustly tethered with International Human Rights Law, and it cannot be said that the latter is being followed without the realisation of the former. Adopting a holistic approach towards the problems faced by these strugglers for their homes, this research paper puts light on the recent and present crisis in Asian and European countries such as Syria, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, etc. Furthermore, there is a traverse across the Asian and European frameworks of tackling the severe lacerations on human rights caused due to a large influx of refugees and internal displacement of persons. The solution lies in the collective efforts by UNHCR [“United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees”], International Organisations, human rights advocates, and other performers with a threefold typology of manoeuvres which include providing effective and constant aid to the ones who are being tormented by promoting voluntary repatriations and other means, spreading awareness so as to inculcate the profound emotions of empathy which would stimulate local integrations, and issuing powerful sanctions for the ones who defy human right law.
