Understanding public attitudes towards refugees and migrants within their host communities is becoming an increasingly
important task for those working on refugee and migration issues. This includes governments, international and national NGOs,
academics, think tanks and civil society. Although there is evidence that refugees and migrants can contribute significantly to
society if given the opportunity to do so (Pantuliano, 2016), public attitudes have a significant bearing on their prospects.
Whether organisations and/or governments are trying to raise funds, disseminate work, or advocate on behalf of refugees and
migrants, their success hinges on how refugees and migrants feature within public attitudes. Hence, our street talk for this issue
of the Arise primers the drivers influencing public attitudes towards refugees and migrants in Uganda, and what they mean for
the government and other key stakeholders working on refugee and migration issues.
