Additional provisions within the revised national refugee law in Ethiopia

Document Type: Reports and Policy Papers
Document Language: English
Ethiopia has recently updated its existing national Refugee Proclamation, making it one of the most progressive in Africa. The new law introduces a number of new provisions that will facilitate refugees’ enjoyment to rights afforded to other foreign nationals residing in the country. A move away from a traditional camp-based approach to assistance, not only seeks to further the dignity of care to those in need, but will ensure an investment in essential services that benefit both refugees and Ethiopian nationals. The following legal provisions are now afforded to refugees under the new refugee law.
