International Migration within, to and from Africa in a Globalised World by Aderanti Adepoju
Book DescriptionInternational Migration within, to and from Africa in a Globalised World adresses the main issues concerning international migration from an African perspective. This timely book encompasses migration as a global phenomenon and considers African migration in all of its dimensions: within, from and to Africa. The book also adresses the very important 21st century political issue of migration management in regional perspectives and considers the crucial issue of the brain drain along with the role of the diaspora and remittances. Professor Aderanti ADEPOJU spent several years researching issues of migration - internal and international migration - in Africa while at the Universities of Ife and Lagos in Nigeria and while working for the ILO, UN and UNFPA. He is currently Chief Executive, Human Resources Development Centre, Lagos, Nigeria and Co-ordinator of the Network of Migration Research on Africa.
