Convened by the Centre for Migration Studies (CMS), University of Ghana and the International Migration Institute (IMI), University of Oxford.
This first African Migrations Workshop exemplified the enormous added value of facilitating communication between researchers studying African migrations. Disciplinary boundaries were continuously crossed during the workshop as participants exchanged views from many different perspectives. Simultaneous translation between French and English also made it possible for researchers to speak and listen across the linguistic divide. The workshop also provided an important platform to early-career African scholars to present their empirical work.
