Africa: Setting for Human Migration
Buuba, Babacar Diop
Convergence, v40 n3-4 p211-216 2007
Analysis of African migrations can help to understand prehistoric, historical, ancient modern and contemporaneous migrations. Movements of populations were and continue to be so intense that, for some analysts, they constitute one of the dominant trends of the history and destiny of the very old continent. African and non-African states, whether providers or receivers, have their policies coordinated or not concerning this phenomenon, intergovernmental organisations or those from the UN system try to give their input for norms in migrations. African and international civil society organisations produce analysis, develop policies; in general they defend migrants' rights. The author proposes a participatory and concerted management of the phenomenon; he invites the co-development and emergence of new citizenship--multicultural and based on solidarity.
