, Index number: AFR 59/021/2011

Amnesty International has documented the experiences of Rwandan refugees who fled to neighbouring countries, including Uganda, following the 1994 genocide as well as in recent years. This memorandum outlines Amnesty International’s recommendations regarding the expected invocation and application of the so-called ceased circumstances clause of the 1951 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees to Rwandan refugees in Uganda in light of international refugee law and standards. It also details Amnesty International’s findings and concerns following a research visit to Uganda.
