The purpose of this study is two-fold. First, to determine the (il)legality of the regroupment policy of the government of Burundi and to clarify the law where necessary. Second, to discuss the policy options open to the humanitarian community to correct harsh and frequently life-threatening situation in which the regroupees find themselves. The study does not attempt to draw a picture of of the violations of humanitarian rights in general.
