FROM REFUGEE TO CITIZEN? : Obstacles to the Naturalisation of Refugees in Uganda (August 2008) - Center For Forced Migrants

FROM REFUGEE TO CITIZEN? : Obstacles to the Naturalisation of Refugees in Uganda (August 2008)

The received wisdom dictates three potential durable solutions for refugees: (1) Voluntary repatriation; (2) resettlement to a third country; and (3) local integration in the country of asylum, often through the grant of citizenship. This paper focuses on the last of these three solutions, with a particular focus on acquisition of citizenship in Uganda......... It is hoped that concerted pressure from the refugee community and its supporters will ensure that those who have spent over twenty years in Uganda, and have begun to call it home, will be given the opportunity to become citizens. No one should be forced to live indefinitely in the inexorable limbo of refugee status.
