We have seen for a very long time how Uganda as a country has been flooded by refugees from
all over the world however the greatest inflow of refugees was from the Congolese people after
the first and second Congo war which caused a whole lot of them to migrate from their country
se!"king for shelter and safety in the neighbming countries, Uganda however welcomed many of
those and along the years they became petmanent residents waiting for the Congo war to
subsidize and eventually t'eturn to their country.
However it should be noted that much as they are refugees in a foreign country they are entitled
to particular rights according to intemational instmments and domestic laws governing that
particular country. This research paper looks at how the law both domestic and intemational has
been effective enough to these Congolese refugees living in Uganda. The paper centers on the
problems that have been faced by the refugees and how the law has come in to ensure that the
refugees get adequate and maximum security while living in a foreign country, it also looks at
the l:Jopholes that are in the law itself in administering justice to these refugees.
The paper futiher looks at the some recommendations that these intemational and domestic
instruments or, the countries implementing such laws in their govemance ought to look at in
order to see to the effectiveness of the law on refugees living in Uganda, and probably those
undergoing a similar scenario in other countries.
Fmihennore the research is centered on how the refugees are handling the pressure of leaving in
a foreign country, more so how life is like living in the camps, and how the governunent of Uganda has come out to ensure that the conditions under which they are living are good.
