Sharing the urban space. Urban refugees' perceptions of life as a refugee in Kampala, Uganda

Type de document: Rapports et evaluations
Langue(s): English
This study explores the life and future prospects of refugees who live in urban areas in developing countries. The study focuses on urban refugees in Kampala, the capital of Uganda which has over 62,000 refugees from several neighbouring countries with fluctuating conflict situations. More than half of the world’s refugees reside in cities today, and the number is expected to increase. However, international assistance and attention focuses still mainly on refugee camps and settlements. Approximately 86 per cent of the world’s refugees reside in developing countries where resources to ensure the rights of refugees are scarce. They are facing numerous challenges related to rapid urbanisation, and their governments are reluctant to allow refugees to settle in urban areas.
