Abstract:

This article argues that the refugee problem presents one of the most pressing challenges for diplomacy and foreign policy in the Horn of Africa. It contends that the effect of the foreign policies of some of the states in the region has been to generate refugees, and that one of the biggest challeges of the foreign policies of states in the region is to address the refugee problem directly. The article examines the diplomatic context and responses to the 1969 Africa refugee regime, explores conflicts as causes of the refugee problem, and re-assesses the refugee probl;em in the region.
