The Migration Experience in Africa

Synopsis

In this book the authors investigate the range of the migration experience in Africa. Because of the variety and complexity of the reasons which surround and underpin why African populations are so mobile, this volume adopts an eclectic approach which illustrates the diversity of theoretical positions, as well as methodological and analytical trends.

The book also provides examples of the great breadth and richness of empirical insights into human migrations in the contemporary African context. The contributions identify and address under-researched themes, such as gender and migration, and more generally point to lacunae in this important area of the development problematique.
