IOM: Migration in West and North Africa and across the Mediterranean: Trends, risks, development and governance

A new 500-page collection of studies published by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) examines new developments in migration within North and West Africa, and from there across the Mediterranean.


From the preface:

"This edited volume provides a uniquely comprehensive and diverse picture of migration in North and West Africa and the Central Mediterranean, compiling a wealth of evidence from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and other United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations and academia. With a view to inform targeted protection and preventative measures, safe alternatives and effective policy approaches, it sets out to enhance understanding of what contributes to migrants’ resilience and development in countries of origin, transit and destination, as well as how policies and programmes interact with and affect such realities. While there are still missing pieces in the picture presented, due to persistent data gaps and challenges, the volume is a testament to the remarkable progress made in recent years to improve evidence on migration in these regions, and its use for programming and policy."
