International Refugee Law in Tanzania

by | Aug 21, 2013

A report prepared by Oxford Pro Bono Publico on international refugee and human rights law and its application to refugee policy in Tanzania (August 2013)

This research was prepared for the Women’s Legal Aid Centre and Womankind Worldwide. The report reviews certain aspects of refugee law and policy in the United Republic of Tanzania from an international law perspective. In particular, it answers three questions: the first two relate to the 2012 Tanzanian declaration of cessation in respect of approximately 38,050 Burundian refugees from both an international refugee law and an international human rights law perspective, and the third considers the Tanzanian encampment policy under international human rights law.
