Kenya: Refugees and COVID

This working paper is based on a qualitative questionnaire crafted to better understand how exactly the COVID-19 pandemic has affected refugees and refugee protection in six African countries: namely Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. We sought to gain insight into the perspectives of persons of refugee background, of scholars, as well as of government officials and aid actors working with and for refugees. Our paper focuses on those responses that concern Kenya only.
