Roth Communications for SIHMA

The International Conference on Migration in Africa (ICMA) held on 3 December 2014 at the University of the Western Cape provided a forum to connect local, African and international scholars, academics, researchers, practitioners, professionals, policy makers and NGO representatives to discuss issues relating to human mobility in Africa.

There were three panel sessions, with international and African experts, that covered the issues of south-south migration, the nexus between migration and development, irregular migration and reintegration of returnee migrants. The Scalabrini Institute for Human Mobility in Africa (SIHMA) was also launched at the conference along with the recent research “Africans on the Move” that highlights the migration innovations, concerns, and practical challenges encountered in the countries Angola, Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa.
