On the margin: Kenya’s pastoralists

NRC/IDMC, The Nansen Initiative

Pastoralists’ internal displacement is often overlooked. Consequently, displaced pastoralists suffer of increased marginalisation and get trapped in poverty with no solu- tion in sight. The marginalised situation of pastoralists in Northern Kenya stands for many others in countries across the African continent. As a well-founded advocacy call for putting the rights of pastoralist IDPs more to the forefront, this study provides the new thinking required to better understand the com- plexity of the internal displacement of pastoralists.
