Protecting and integrating urban migrants in Addis Ababa Cities offer hope, opportunity, and essential services – making them a hub for migrants seeking a better life. But what happens to the urban refugees once they get to the city, and are their expectations met? There is little research on urban migration in the context of African cities. Addis Ababa University and HSLU-SA are therefore conducting an explorative study on the economic and social integration of refugees in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. As one of the largest labour-sending and refugee-hosting countries in Africa, Ethiopia is an important hub of both outward and inward migration.
