An Overview of Uganda’s Migration Profile

Public Dialogue at Makerere University

On Wednesday 7th December we set out to Makerere University for a public dialogue on the state of migration in Uganda. A youth engagement, we hoped to provide more information, correct misconceptions, and inspire their scholarly pursuits. Most curious about Karamoja and the increasing presence of homeless Karamajongs on the streets around them, critical about the government’s capacity to meet the refugee policy’s demands, the 174 students we met up with were an intelligent and challenging crowd for our panelists. The panelists included; Edgar Mwine, an Huduma fellow, and Migration Expert, Sheila Nsekanabo, a researcher at the Centre for Multilateral Affairs, Natasha Hadijjah Sebunya, an Artist and Writer, Lomilou Lucious, a Programme Manager at Mercy Corps, and Ian Katusiime, a journalist at the Independent Magazine. The public dialogue was moderated by Ojok Okello, the founder, and CEO of Okere City.
