MULTIMEDIA and VIDEO: Deaspina, Stories of an Exodus

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, in 2016, Uganda received more refugees than the whole of Europe. 85% of these refugees are women and children.By describing the Ugandan model, this documentary seeks to prompt reflection on the fact that there are alternative solutions to the problem of immigration. The fact that this response has come from one of the poorest countries in the world highlights just how paradoxical it is to have a system that sees refugees merely as a problem and as a cost. The unique case of Uganda shows that they can become a resource that benefits everyone*: the host countries and the refugees themselves, with particular attention paid to the protection of mothers and minors.
