Abstract

In the aftermath of 11 September 2001 attack, there was increased security concern in relation to border entry of refugee claimants. Subsequent to this event, several new measures were implemented to enhance the control mechanisms to reduce the threat of terrorism. In light of the close link between refugee and security concerns, especially in relation to the fear of terrorism, this paper examines the consequences of 9/11 on the conceptualization of security and implications for refugees and migrants from Venezuela, assesses the consequences of hosting refugees by neighbouring countries of Venezuela and investigates and proffers solutions in reconciling State security and refugee security.
