Economic Development in Africa Report 2018: Migration for Structural Transformation
- United Nations
The latest edition of the UNCTAD flagship Economic Development in Africa Report takes aim at the preconceived notion that migration from Africa harms rather than helps the continent. Titled 'Migration for Structural Transformation', the 2018 report argues that migration benefits both origin and destination countries across Africa, and suggests that African migration can play a key role in the structural transformation of the continent’s economies. Pointing out that, contrary to some perceptions, most migration in Africa today is taking place within the continent, the report argues that this intra-African migration is an essential ingredient for deeper regional and continental integration.
