About this item

This bookis about the convergence of two problems: the ongoing realities of conflict andforced migration in Africa’s Great Lakes region, and the crisis of citizenshipand belonging. By bringing them together, the intention is to see how,combined, they can help point the way towards possible solutions. Based on1,115 interviews conducted over 6 years in the region, the book points to waysin which refugees challenge the parameters of citizenship and belonging as theycarve out spaces for inclusion in the localities in which they live. Yet with apolicy environment that often leads to marginalisation, the book highlights theneed for policies that pull people into the centre rather than polarise andexclude; and that draw on, rather than negate, the creativity that refugeesdemonstrate in their quest to forge spaces of belonging.
