The Faculty of Letters and Social Sciences of the Mohammed V University Rabat – Agdal and the International Migration Institute at the University of Oxford convened an African Migrations Workshop brought together migration researchers from Africa (North and sub-Saharan) in order to:
- Map contemporary African migration patterns through presenting empirical research
- Discuss innovative methods and methodologies of migration research
Following up from the first African Migrations Workshop held in September 2007 in Accra, Ghana, this workshop aimed to further strengthen migration research within Africa by bringing together scholars from across the continent and discussing innovative methodological approaches to migration research. Papers were presented by scholars and graduate students based primarily in North African and sub-Saharan African universities who are adopting new and innovative methodological approaches to empirical migration research in Africa. A full conference report will be available online soon.
