Right of Return

The legal right that an individual has to go back to his/her country. The right of return is guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but there is debate about what is meant by "country," whether it refers to one's physical place of birth or the state with which one's ethnicity is associated. The right of return remains controversial in many places, notably Israel and the Palestinian territories.
