The Kiryandongo camp in Uganda is one of many camps created for Sudanese refugees as a result of war. Tania Kaiser describes its residents' perceptions, knowledge and views on the CPA, which resulted from a process that they had little opportunity to influence.

She finds that they are keen to return home but want certain assurances: for them the success of the CPA may be judged retrospectively by its capacity to deliver security and development.

Kaiser argues that massive needs will exist on repatriation and that support to refugees, returnees and other vulnerable groups should be provided fairly and transparently, without reference to the ethnic and political identities of recipients.
