Regional Challenges of West African Migration

African and European Perspectives

image of Regional Challenges of West African Migration

This publication presents contributions by international experts on various aspects of West African migration. It provides a contrasting perspective to current debates which essentially focus on security issues. This rather non-institutional approach promotes a constant dialogue based on analyses of the actual situation: the authors encourage "win-win" mobility for all parties involved (Europe, North Africa and West Africa), whether it be a host, transit or departure country.

Sahel and West Africa Club

This paper analyses the various circular migratory patterns in Mauritania. It sheds light on the geopolitical and social dimensions that govern and influence migratory movement, and demonstrates how political forces act both as a ’cause’ and as a ’resource’ shaping migration. The findings of the paper illustrate how the socio-political context in Mauritania can enhance or hinder any kind of circularity.
