Originally the aim of this study was the exploration of the current situation of the right
to education for refugee children in Burundi and Rwanda being the two countries with
the highest number of refugees in Africa. However because of lack of information
about the refugee situation in Rwanda, this study is limited to analysis of the situation
in Burundi. This study then analyses the state of implementation of the international
and national legal instrument by the government of Burundi and suggest ways of
implementing the existing international and national legal framework.
