Refugee Returns from Kenya to Somalia and the Threatened Closure of the Dadaab Camp
Description: Dec 1, 2016: Kenya is host to more than 334,000 refugees from Somalia who have fled the violence of the al-Shabaab terrorist group. More than 260,000 of those refugees live in the Dadaab refugee camp, making it the largest refugee camp in the world. In March of this year, the Kenyan government announced its intention to close Dadaab, as well as other camps housing Somali refugees in Kenya, citing the “economic, security, and environmental burden". With no alternative options, some refugees have been coerced into repatriating to Somalia, where insecurity and an ongoing humanitarian crisis continue. Yarnell and RI President Michel Gabaudan travelled to both Kenya and Somalia to meet with Somalis still in Kenya and those who had returned home to better understand the dangers Somalis will face when Dadaab is closed.

A Battle Not Yet Over: Displacement and Women's Needs in Post-Peace Agreement Colombia
Description: After 50 years of brutal war, the peace agreement between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People’s Army is cause to celebrate. Over the last five decades of the conflict, at least 218,094 Colombians have died, 25,007 individuals have disappeared, and millions have been displaced. Women and girls have long been on the frontlines of this war – as combatant, victim, and peacemaker. What they and all conflict victims stand to gain from peace is monumental, given that entire generations have known nothing but war. For more, see Refugees International's latest report:
