Evaluation of the African Union Migration Policy Framework for Africa

Migration across the globe has become a pertinent issue that many countries are trying to understand and manage effectively. In Africa, migration is now in the forefront of political discussions, especially in those countries where people have been displaced through conflict or climatic change, or where people move in search of economic and social opportunities that do not exist in their countries of origin. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the extent to which the MPFA has been adopted and implemented by AU Member States and the RECs in managing migration. The evaluation would also identify opportunities and challenges that Member States and RECs have encountered in using the MPFA as a guide, and provide evidence that would help in revising the framework and its implementation strategy. Thus, the evaluation would assess the continued relevance of the MPFA within the context of the current migration dynamics.
