Briefing Notes and Special Reports

Aside from working papers and seminars the RLP produces a range of publications for multiple purposes. The research is targeted at a range of audiences (eg academia, government officials or the public) and aims to produce information quickly on time-sensitive issues. These result in special reports compiled either through individual consultancies or for external publications, including briefing notes that represent immediate but preliminary observations from the field, letters sent to the national newspapers or advocacy briefs that attempt to bring attention to specific thematic areas.

The Refugee Law Project (RLP) Legal Aid and Counseling (LAC) Department conducted in-depth interviews in Mid March 2007 with refugees living in the Camp, with the neighbouring host community local leaders, government and UN officials and NGO staff working in the settlement.

The RLP conducted over 200 in-depth interviews in Arua District in late July and early August 2006, some with self-settled refugees living in Arua town and the majority with refugees living in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement. Government officials and UN and NGO staff working in the settlement and in Arua and Rhino Camp towns were also interviewed. This brief represents preliminary findings related to three of the most salient issues that emerged from the visit to Arua, and will be followed by a more in-depth analysis once all the field studies have been completed. An earlier draft of this document has been circulated to a number of key stakeholders for preliminary comment. However, the RLP welcomes any further comment which can inform our final research output.
