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.
