This project explored alternative conceptions of human mobility based on empirical research in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Morocco and Nigeria.

A series of case studies, designed and conducted in partnership with African researchers, set out to generate new data, methodologies and conceptual frameworks. The project was also designed to help develop the capacity of African institutions to undertake state-of-the-art migration research.
