Through conducting research on a number of issues related to Migration and Refugee law, I was able to gain all round knowledge about the challenges, gaps and untapped opportunities in the field of refugee law and Migration that African states can adopt to deal with the unending refugee/migrant crisis in Africa. As a lecturer, I have been able to advise and train my students on matters related to Refugee law. 

Working with the clinic taught me practical challenges migrant workers experience while away from their home countries since nobody will ever see your plight as a migrant/refugee as depicted in our song entitled ‘Away from Home’, a project of the Migration clinic.  However, this song also taught me how to use the art of music and every tool around me to speak against the injustices around us like Xenophobia.

The Migration clinic is a fundamental tool in the fight against the injustices faced by African Migrants and the refugee crisis in Africa.
