Conflict-Induced Migration in Africa: Maximizing New Opportunities to Address its Peace, Security and Inclusive Development Dimensions

"The meeting examined major global and continental trends on migration vis-à-vis its impact on affected African migrant populations as well as on sustainable development, peace and security and good governance in Africa. Drawing on the recent xenophobic experiences of foreign migrants in South Africa as a case example, among others, the meeting discussed the roles and efforts African regional and sub-regional organizations have made in formulating and implementing various policy instruments on conflict-induced and forced migration, as well as the challenges confronting them. The meeting also highlighted a number of new opportunities for addressing migration and conflict related issues in a holistic manner."
