CESSATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION OF ANGOLAN REFUGEES IN SOUTH AFRICA
In this report, we present the results of a survey conducted between January and February 2015 to assess the implementation of the cessation of the international protection of Angolan refugees in South Africa. In May 2013, the South African government declared the cessation of the international protection to Angolan refugees who fled the long civil war which ended in 2002. The survey establishes that Angolan refugees are reluctant to return to their home country. Most of the respondents have lived in South Africa since 1999 and have established family and cultural connections in the country. Having lived in South Africa for so many years, Angolan refugees have established their roots and families in the country.
