Migrating to another country, and settling there as refugees, has practical implications for the lives of men and women, and for social relations. Women face social vulnerability as a result of changed gender relations, despite opportunities to challenge existing stereotypes concerning women’s and men’s roles and identities. This article describes the coping strategies adopted by Sudanese refugees in Ikafe, Uganda, and the effect of these on social relations, and suggests policy changes that could alleviate the situation.
