Also available in Deutsch

As the third largest refugee-hosting country in the world, Uganda has a much-praised 'open door' policy for those fleeing conflict and persecution. The implications of this policy and the economic dimension of refugees in the country was at the center of the #OpenDoorsUG public dialogue on 21st November 2017 at Makerere University, Kampala. Based on the contributions at the dialogue, as well as additional literature and interviews, this synthesis report provides a deeper analysis on the economic impact of hosting refugees in Uganda.
