It depends on your reason for requesting a visa on the basis of being a refugee. I believe each case is judged on its own merit.

But the general definition of a refugee according to the paper below is

'Refugees are persons who are outside the country of their nationality and have a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion and are unable or, owing to such fear, unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country or who not having a nationality and being outside the country of former habitual residence as a result of such events, are unable to, or owing to such fear, are unwilling to return to it.'
