Challenging the perceptions of migration in Africa

22. august, kl. 17:00-18:30
Oslo Afro Arts Festival og Fellesrådet for Afrika
Bruket, Schweigaardsgate 34C
Facebook event

The story of African migration is often framed as a mass exodus from conflict or climate change and we have all seen the pictures of African migrants in boats arriving in Europe. But what is the situation really like on the African continent? How much has the African migrant population increased, if any? And where does the African migrant migrate to?

Few things are as contested as migration and the rhetoric used about migrants often witness of a suspicion towards the ”others”, also in African countries. What are the challenges linked to migration on the continent? And moreover, is migration inherently a negative phenomenon? Or could it also be a source of prosperity, innovation and sustainable development?

In the panel:

Aderanti Adepoju, professor and the founder of Network of Migration Research on Africa (NOMRA)

Jørgen Carling, research professor at PRIO, has done extensive research on different aspects of migration

Maria Hernández Carretero, postdoctoral fellow at Department of Social Anthropology, UiO, and has worked with issues related to migration

The moderator will be Cathrine Talleraas, a doctoral researcher at PRIO who has researched the effects and consequences of migration policies
