The Impact of the Tigray crisis on Ethiopian and Eritrean Onward Movements within Sudan and to Libya and Tunisia
As of 30 June 2021, UNHCR has registered 46,505 refugees in Sudan who fled the Tigray crisis in Ethiopia. Indications from the field, as well as media reporting, reveal the dire situation that refugees face in camps in Eastern Sudan, raising questions about the impact on irregular onward movement dynamics. In an effort to inform the programming of protection actors working in Sudan and farther along the mixed migration routes north towards Libya and Tunisia, this snapshot explores the onward movement aspirations and routes of Ethiopians and Eritreans who have left since the outbreak of conflict in Tigray in November 2020 and its reported spillover effects to other regions in Ethiopia and Eritrea.
