October 2016 marks 25 years of the existence of the Dadaab camps in north-eastern Kenya. Established in 1991 when conflicts in neighbouring Ethiopia, Sudan and Somalia forced thousands to flee to Kenya, the camps have swelled to far more than their capacity over the last quarter of a century. Today, 261,000 people, the majority Somalis, call Dadaab home. Consisting of five camps, it is still today the world’s largest refugee camp complex.
