This chapter covers the root causes of forced migration in Africa 1 and the related international refugee regime. It also touches on the participation of females and children in wars; the unraveling of the state, social institutions, and structures; assistance programs and their reinforcement of male domination; resettlement and voluntary repatriation. Although internal displacees are discussed, refugees are my main focus. In Africa as elsewhere, males have often been the instigators of violent conflict, yet they are not necessarily the ones who suffer the most. The vulnerable members of society-children, women, the elderly, and the infirm-usually come out worst in these conflicts. This chapter shows that the situation usually does not improve during the course of flight, while in exile, on returning home, or during resettlement. I also show that gender inequality is a significant cause of forced migration and vice versa. Without a fundamental restructuring of society, making it more equitable and reducing levels of violence, particularly those directed at the weakest members, forced migration will continue.
