Mombasa, Kenya: A Case Report in Refugees in Towns

This report examines the impact and experiences of Somalis in Mombasa, and how Somali refugees and Kenyan-Somalis navigate their ambiguous identities and find creative ways to access the privileges promised by recognized legal status, with or without the status itself. It is written by Aisha, a Somali long-time resident of Mombasa, and Ella, an American graduate student at The Fletcher School. Both have worked extensively with migration and Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (PCVE) in Mombasa.
