Sexual and Gender Based Violence against Refugees in Kenya and Uganda

Women in International Security published in March 2018 a policy brief titled "Sexual- and Gender-Based Violence in Refugee Settings in Kenya and Uganda" by Pearl Karuhanga Atuhaire and Grace Ndirangu, graduate students respectively at the Durban University of Technology and the African Nazarene University in Nairobi.

Their research concluded that female refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo at refugee camps in Kenya and Uganda face a high incidence of sexual- and gender-based violence. The authors argue that refugee settlements are not safe spaces for refugee women.
