Rwandan Refugees In Southwestern Uganda: Their Attitudes and Responses to Repatriation 1994-2012
2017 1-4955-0601-0
This book is about the attitudes and responses of post-genocide Rwandan refugees have towards repatriation. Despite the fact that conditions in Rwanda that caused them to leave have abated, many refugees are reluctant to return. Dr. Karooma suggests that repatriation is not the best option at the present time and that remaining in places like Uganda for security purposes while reforms to make Rwanda safer are implemented.
