How do we understand African migration on the continent?

14. oktober, kl. 18:00-19:30
Fellesrådet for Afrika

Facebook event

This event is a part of The Council's migration campaign 2019

In 2017, the majority of international migrants resided in a country in their region of birth. The same is true for Africa. But how does African migration on the continent look like? What opportunities do migrants have in their home countries and what are the perceived opportunities in the host countries? How do migrants take on new identities in their host communities and navigate a new life in a new country?

Even though African migrants contribute to both the local economy and the economy in their home countries by paying taxes, remittances etc, their situation can be challenging. Recently there has been another outbreak of xenophobic riots in parts of South Africa aimed at mainly black, African immigrants. What are the challenges being a migrant on the continent? And how do we understand the migration on the African continent?
