Abstract

There are currently over 2 million South Sudanese refugees, most resulting from the 2013-2018 civil war. Despite now living in relative safety, most residents of Palabek Refugee Settlement in northern Uganda still experience great feelings of insecurity and uncertainty. This story, in which an old woman is accused of witchcraft, shows how people feel abandoned by camp authorities and resort to taking action themselves.
