Experts call for more flexible policies for urban refugees

A new report that analysed refugee related laws and policies in Uganda and Kenya and their responsiveness to urban refugee needs, has called on government, donors, and non-government organisations to do more in promoting urban refugees’ self-reliance.

‘‘Settlement -based policies for the distribution of assistance re­flect the need to prioritise refugees who are the least self-reliant but can also result in vulnerable urban refugees being excluded from programming they need,’’ observes the report launched yesterday in Kampala by the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

In Uganda urban refugees are by policy expected to be self-reliant with those who find challenges living a dignified life in urban areas encouraged to relocate to refugee settlements were humanitarian assistance is provided.  Refugees in urban areas however face legal, policy and perception challenges in getting work and setting up business.
