Practice Relating to Rule 132. Return of Displaced Persons
Section B. Measures to facilitate return and reintegration
Armenia’s Law on Refugees and Asylum (2008) states: “All competent bodies of the Republic of Armenia dealing with asylum and refugee issues must … facilitate the voluntary return of a refugee or asylum seeker”.
The Law defines a refugee as:
a foreign national who is compelled to leave the country of his/her nationality, or, in case of a stateless person, the country of his/her former habitual residence due to generalized violence, foreign aggression, internal conflicts, massive violations of human rights, or other serious events disrupting public order.
