Senegalese labour migration to Europe
The first results of the MAFE (Migration between Africa and Europe) research project, and their implications for migration policy, will be presented at the ITC-ILO in Turin on 8 October 2010.
MAFE is a vast research project whose main aim is to study the migration flows between Senegal, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana and Europe. The MAFE project is funded by the European Commission and run by INED (the National Demographic Studies Institute) in Paris. Nine research centres in Europe and Africa that work on international migration are taking part.
The meeting is open to the public. It has been organized by FIERI ( International and European Forum on Migration Research) and its MAFE project partners, working closely with the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO) as part of its training in international labour migration.
Using data on migration from Senegal, issues such as economic integration in the receiving country, economic reintegration in areas of origin, and relationships and links between the two contexts will be covered in order to stimulate discussion of the results and to come up with recommendations.
The conference will be held in French, without interpretation.
