The Global Engagement Network on Internal Displacement in Africa (GENIDA) is an international collaborative project on internal displacement.
The GENIDA Project is the first of its kind in Africa. It is a network geared towards the protection of internally displaced persons in Africa. GENIDA seeks to advance sustainable solutions while also bridging the gap between research and policy responses. GENIDA provides a useful platform for critical engagement on solutions to the issue of internal displacement, an issue that affects more than 12 million people in Africa.
The Global Engagement Network on Internal Displacement in Africa (GENIDA) is an international collaborative project on internal displacement. It is a network geared towards the protection of internally displaced persons in Africa.
GENIDA brings together academics, policy-makers and civil society to address the paucity of research on internal displacement in sub-Saharan Africa; and the inadequate response to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in law, policy and practice in these countries.
GENIDA E-learning platform on IDPs is Live!
GENIDA e-learning on IDPs is aimed at empowering and equipping advocates, civil society actors, lawyers, researchers, policy analysts and law makers with practical leadership skills tailored towards creating a society that respects protects and supports IDPs. GENIDA envisions an Africa where the rights of IDPs are observed, protected and promoted. We believe that an investment in mentorship, civic education, capacity development in form of training will secure the respect, protection promotion and observance of the rights of IDPs today and in the future.
