Dr Naohiko Omata and Uganda-based HIP researchers, Kiflu Hussain, Robert Hakiza and Ntakamaze Nziyonvira, provide insight in a recent article for the Guardian
'From Syria to Central African Republic, how to invest in refugees' features comments from development workers and researchers around the world.
Naohiko, Kiflu, Robert and Ntakamaze discuss their experiences in Uganda and share what they have learned from their research and personal experiences. They emphasise the importance of refugee participation and integration into local social, political and economic life, and the need for host governments to take this seriously.
RSC Working Paper 54, by Sarah Deardorff, is also cited as a resource on camps by Jessie Thompson of Care International. Titled 'How long is too long? Questioning the legality of long-term encampment through a human rights lens', the paper argues that long-term encampment is inconsistent with international law.
