GENIDA Project is a network for the protection of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Africa that seeks to advance sustainable solutions while also bridging gap between research and policy responses. GENIDA provides useful platform for critical engagement on solutions to issue of internal displacement, an issue that affects more than 12 million people in Africa.
The project is an international collaboration between the Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, South Africa and the Refugee Law Initiative at School of Advanced Study, University of London, United Kingdom, supported by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The expertise and networks of these two specialised research centres underpin the success of this open network, which draw in researchers from universities, research institutions and civil society across Africa, as well as key development policy-makers from countries affected by serious dynamics of internal displacement. TPFI is also collaborating with the Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law; University of Pretoria - South Africa and they are advocating for the plights of Urban IDPs (as a result of the unaddressed legacies of the prolonged war) in Uganda.
