The administration of refugees in Zambia
Chongo V. Chitupila
This paper will briefly discuss the legal system and refugee situation in Zambia. The paper will then highlight the various international and regional refugee and human rights instruments to which Zambia is a party. Domestic legislation that addresses refugees will be analysed and pertinent provisions will be emphasised. The Refugee Bill 2008 which is draft legislation will also be examined to determine whether it improves on existing legislation or not. Zambia has two parallel RSD procedures, and both will be explained. Furthermore, there will be an examination of select refugee rights and durable solutions. The paper will conclude with recommendations.
