Refugee Bill

COMMENTS TO THE REFUGEES BILL 2019: The National Assembly of Kenya is in the process of deliberating the Bill which provides a framework for refugee rights in Kenya. This marks the second attempt to repeal the current outdated Refugees Act 2006. Nairobi Hub through Global Shapers Loice Erambo (supported by Kakuma Hub’s Zakaria Odawa) submitted comments to the Law Society of Kenya seeking amendments to the Bill for a more progressive refugee policy in Kenya. The Bill is awaiting the Second reading in Parliament.


The Global Shapers Community is a global network of over 400 city-based hubs including Nairobi Hub, Kisumu Hub and the first Hub located in a refugee camp, Kakuma Hub, all located in Kenya
