Gender is a crucial factor in the rising number of immigrants and refugees. Women and men primarily live in relationships that are rooted in historical subjugation. This affects their whole lives and makes them vulnerable. Women and children are more likely to be forced into refuge by wartime gender-based violence than men. Even in the refugee camps, the female immigrants confront additional obstacles, like as sexual assault and abuse (Jetten & Esses, 2018). Migration is influenced by the relationship-related gender expectations. For example, the LGBTI community migrates to places where their sexual orientation can be hidden.
Cultural factors have a significant impact on immigrants and refugees. In the United States, there is a much more individualistic culture, compared to Europe which has more of a collectivist society. People often view immigrants and refugees as competitors for jobs, housing and other resources. They are more susceptible to exploitation and abuse (Jetten & Esses, 2018). Some regions in the United States have forced immigrants and refugees to work low-wage jobs. People from economically poor countries and refugees are more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. These people are frequently considered to be inferior. However, immigrants and refugees from economically advanced countries are more likely to resist exploitation and abuse. Both receive better services from their host countries.
The intersection of aspects of the economic, political, social and cultural life
Immigration and refugees are affected by the country’s regulations and rules. USA has strict visa and immigration policies. In order to receive asylum in the United States, immigrants must prove they are under persecution in their homeland due to race, religion, nationality or other political convictions. You may need to have a clean record or be able to provide for yourself financially. An unstable political and social climate can increase the country’s refugee and immigrant populations.
Many people discriminate against immigrants and refugees of color and use them as a means to exploit their skin. Their chances of getting aid might be reduced due to language and cultural barriers. Poor income refugees are at greater risk of being exploited and maltreated. They may be compelled to labor in hazardous or exploitative circumstances, or they may lack access to proper shelter or food (Khullar & Chokshi, 2019). Gay, lesbian and transgender women and immigrants as well as refugees, have all been subject to violence and discrimination. Their vulnerability can lead to abuse and neglect, and even to obstacles in their education and job search. Vulnerability can often lead to abuse and exploitation. This may have a number of detrimental effects such as mental and physical pains, financial problems, isolation from the outside world, or even death.
Proposed Community Initiative
This community initiative will provide comprehensive education for refugees and teach them social skills. Candidates will be able to learn more about the traditions and culture of their host country by taking courses. This initiative will allow refugees to be separated according to their education requirements. It also provides them with basic skills and training in English. As technical and professionally-created courses, you can also learn plumbing, baking, fitting, tailoring and basic life support.
