The African Approach on Migration
Abstract:Discussions of intra‐ and extra‐continental migration are now on the agenda in Africa. ECOWAS and African Union initiatives are reviewed below followed by an overview of West African national migration policies (more extensive research is necessary 1). By observing the relations between actors in the African mobility system, it is possible to analyse the relative consistency of bilateral and regional goals and commitments. This information will be useful to understanding the issues involved in a common African approach on migration.
