The paper concentrates on the problem of refugee definition under international law. The main legal instrument in international law has a definition that does not cover all those who need international protection. In particular, this paper is motivated by the ongoing Latvian Case of the Afghan de facto refugee. The crucial question that is addressed in this paper is: whether the renunciation condition in the naturalization provision for persons with subsidiary status can be justified and does it comply with European and international standards.
