Globally, there are an estimated 54.7 million displaced persons, comprised of 38 million internally displaced and 16.7 million refugees in foreign countries. An estimated 14.9 million persons, are in Sub-Saharan Africa, with about 8.7 million residing in the Horn of Africa region (HOA) is unique due to the protracted nature of conflicts and other refugee generating causes and which have given rise to successive generations of people in asylum. The region, made up of Djibouti, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Kenya is beset with a complex web of population displacements generated by military conflict, a history of weak governance, insecurity, environmental degradation, poverty and persistent development challenges. As a result, most countries act both as sources and destinations of these forced migrants. The HOA region is home to four major displacement situations including Eritrea’s mixed migration, Somalia’s conflict and environmental related displacements, South Sudan’s multiple layers of conflict and Sudan’s center-peripheral tensions that induce displacements. These displacements are locally hosted in Ethiopia, the largest refugee hosting country in Africa and Kenya hosting the second largest number. The impact of displaced populations on host community is complicated and contested. Potential positive contributions of displaced populations to their host communities include stimulation of markets, availability of cheap labour, investment in infrastructure and the strengthening of civil society. However, negative impacts include excessive strain on the social infrastructure, rising commodity prices and increased environmental degradation etc. Problematic coping strategies may lead to a rise in vices including insecurity.
