The study dares to take a journey to analyze the nexus between the refugee-host country relationship in Kenya and refugee local integration. It is the aim of the researcher to demonstrate the practical and theoretical discourses on the two issues that determine the refuge welfare in Kenya. Investigations on the dynamics and complicated links within Kenya are conducted to address the research topic. The study further ventures into the historical background of the refugee-host country relationship in Kenya. This offers a foundation of the arguments in the study with an understanding of the pre-theoretical process of local integration. By appreciating Kenya as the country holding the world’s largest refugee camp, the study offers undeniable perspectives on the competing nature between the local communities and refugees. In the aim of contributing the body of knowledge, the study introduces imagery of analysis of both refugee-host country relationship and local integration. This analytical stand demonstrates the impacts the two concepts have on each other. Kenya’s legal framework with regards to refugees is taken into account while deducing the extent into which the country has promoted local integration as one of the globally accepted durable solutions. In sum, the study aims to demonstrate whether or not local integration is indeed a forgotten durable solution.
