Conference on Migration and Displacement in Contemporary Africa

Francesc Cambó Room
Tuesday 30 May - 10:00

While public debate and policy attention on migration has focused in recent years on so-called migration crises in the Mediterranean region and in Europe, much less sustained attention has been given to the processes of migration and displacement in contemporary Africa.

UNU-GCM will hold a conference with the aim to shed light on these diverse dimensions and experiences of migration and forced displacement within contemporary Africa, and from Africa to other regions. It will bring together scholars who examine this from different disciplinary and methodological perspectives, in order to foster a wide-ranging dialogue on the local, regional and global implications of these movements.
