Refugee camps are established sites of protection for people fleeing from violent conflict and persecution. Yet, paradoxically, violence frequently occurs inside these refuges. In Difficult Life in a Refugee Camp, Krause offers compelling and nuanced insights into gender-related violence amongst refugees who escaped conflicts in Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo). The book is based on her extensive research in Kyaka II refugee camp in Uganda in 2014.
