Somali Refugee Camps in Ethiopia

The Women's Refugee Commission published a study in August 2012 titled "In Search of Safety and Solutions: Somali Refugee Adolescent Girls at Sheder and Aw Barre Camps, Ethiopia."

The study concluded that adolescent girls in the Somali refugee camps in the Jijiga region are at extreme risk of sexual violence, exploitation and harmful traditional practices. Most girls are isolated, marginalized and highly vulnerable.
