CONFERENCE IN KHARTOUM – Migration and Exile in the Horn of Africa, State of knowledge and current debates

AfficheThe conference “Migration and Exile in the Horn of Africa. State of Knowledge and Current Debates” was held on November 17-18th in Khartoum.

During this two-day conference, about forty researchers have presented their empirical approaches on the issue of migration in the Horn of Africa. This event was jointly organized by CEDEJ Khartoum, CFEE Addis Ababa and the University of Khartoum.

The recent period is characterized by increasing internal migrations and by a growing number of displaced persons in the sub-region, especially in Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan. At the same time, the number of shipwrecks in the Mediterranean Sea involving migrants coming from the Horn of Africa has tragically climbed. The issue of migration, which today largely captures the attention of media and politicians, has been widely studied by African and European researchers specialized on the Horn of Africa.

In addition to providing scientific approaches on the migratory processes, the conference “Migration and Exile in the Horn of Africa” gave us the possibility to shift and re-center the analysis on the Horn of Africa.
