What Moves Africa
Africa is often associated with a high degree of migration. But we only see images capturing the situation along European shores, while ninety percent of the migration occurs inside Africa. Knowledge of economic and geopolitical trends will enable us to better comprehend the reasons why some Africans choose to leave their country or region or even the continent. How is (internal) migration affected by the security situation or climate change? What role does urbanization and labour migration play in this context? And how to devise functioning migration policies that would reflect the complex realities burdened with the legacy of colonialism?
