The Global Engagement Network on Internal Displacement in Africa (GENIDA) and The Populace Foundation International (TPFI), in partnership with The State of the Union (SOTU), and in collaboration with the Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL) and the Centre for Policy Analysis, convene a “Colloquium to Critically Examine Uganda’s National IDP Policy (2004) against the Kampala Convention” on zoom.
Date: 8 – 9 September 2021
Time: 9:00 – 16:00 PM (EAT)
The meeting will bring together IDPs in the six districts of Buliisa, Soroti, Mbale, Kasese, Oyam and Acholi in Uganda that have been impacted by internal displacement. The meeting will also be graced by the members of Parliament and CSOs involved in research on internal displacement. Policy advocates from Cameroon, Mozambique, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Kenya will examine the Uganda IDP Policy and its application in their countries for critical analysis and examination. These advocates are among the ten core GENIDA Network members based in these countries engaged in day-to-day research, advocacy and policy reform dialogues to protect the rights of the internally displaced persons in their respective countries.
