East Africa: Forced Migration, Citizenship, and Belonging

In collaboration with the International Refugee Rights Initiative based in Kampala, Uganda, the Forced Migration project of the SSRC's Migration Program is sponsoring a series of case studies with locally based refugee research and advocacy organizations to determine how access and denial to the rights of citizenship affect the displacement, protection, and return of displaced populations in the Great Lakes Region of East Africa and can inform policy reforms to enhance migrants’ rights.
