Global Migration Futures, Horn of Africa and Yemen: Project Briefing
- 9 February 2012
A short document detailing the objectives and work plan for this extension of the GMF project is now available to read
The Horn of Africa and Yemen region is home to one of the most highly visible mixed migration flows, with the number of people moving increasing over the last two decades. Despite the regional nature of these flows, the regional dialogue on this issue remains weak and current initiatives tend to be local and scattered. Moreover, research into the journeys of migrants from this region tends to focus on those whose destinations lay in Europe. While the migration literature recognises the main drivers of movement in the region, it does not explore how they change over time and the implications for the future. This project aims to address these gaps.
