Centre of African Studies: News


New publication by Gianluca Iazzolino

The briefing, published by the Rift Valley Institute, examines the emergence of the Somali migration route to Uganda and its significance in the long history of Somali migration in East Africa.

It discusses the factors underlying the decision-making processes of Somali refugees in relation to cross-border movement. And it asks whether the Somali flows to Uganda are a short-term trend in response to a deterioration in living conditions and security in Kenya or whether they are part of a larger phenomenon, the formation of a diaspora with a longer time horizon.
