Africa Migration Report: Challenging the narrative

From 2000 to 2019, the number of international migrants in Africa increased from 15.1 million to 26.6 million. This is the sharpest relative increase among all major regions of the world. It is important to note, however, that the total number of international migrants recorded in Africa remains relatively modest compared to other world regions and to Africa’s total population. It is critical to begin to analyze the distortions that impact not only the narrative of African migration, but also the basis for migration policymaking and practice on the continent. 

The Africa Migration report challenges common narratives of African migration, in order to advance the African migration agenda in the broader development and integration of the continent.
