Between mid-December and early May , more than 71, refugees fleeing violence in South Sudan sought refuge in Adjumani District in northern Uganda. This major influx has challenged the capabilities of the Ugandan government, the international community, and humanitarian actors to provide for the basic human needs and security of these refugees. The complex ethnic dimensions of the conflict in South Sudan uniquely influenced this refugee influx, with ethnic tensions playing a significant role in the physical security of South Sudanese refugees in transit camps and settlements in Uganda.
Through research in refugee hosting areas RHAs in Adjumani District, this study assesses the security challenges faced by South Sudanese refugees in Uganda to better understand the security effects of international forced migration induced by ethnic conflict. This research found that: 1 ethnic zoning policies have a significant effect on refugee security in northern Uganda and opportunities for peace building; 2 the unique role of the Ugandan host community in settling refugees causes significant tensions and risks of conflict; 3 refugees face additional security risks from sexual and gender-based violence SGBV , crime within RHAs, potential forcible military recruitment, and tensions between refugees and aid workers over aid distribution; and, 4 current approaches to conflict mitigation and peace building by the Government of Uganda GoU and its partners are limited and inconsistent with the international legal obligation to protect refugees from security threats.
