TEDx at Kakuma Refugee Camp - Making False Promises?

On June 9, the UNHCR co-hosted TEDxKakumaCamp, the first-ever TEDx event held in a refugee camp. The talks  promised to tell "stories that uplift and inspire not just the communities that host them but the entire world". But Hanno Brankamp thinks not - "Rebranding refugees as entrepreneurs and camps as places of opportunity shows the boundless cynicism of neoliberal humanitarianism", he writes for African Arguments.
