New working paper by our researcher Kerilyn Schewel and Asmamaw Legass Bahir was just published.

This paper asks 1) how migration trends within and from Ethiopia have changed over the last century, and 2) what dimensions of social change help explain these shifts. It finds that development policy in Ethiopia has led to the sedentarization of nomadic and semi-nomadic populations, a slow but steady urbanization of the population, and a diversification of international migration trajectories. It then examines the impacts of regime change, industrialization, the expansion of formal education, and infrastructure development on these migration trends over time.
