In an era of globalization, population growth, and displacements, migration is now a fact of life in a constantly shifting economic and political world order. This book contributes to the discourse on the beneficiaries, benefactors, and the casualties of African displacement. While the few existing studies have emphasized economic motivation as the primary factor triggering African migration, this volume treats a range of issues: economic, socio-political, pedagogical, developmental, and cultural. Organized with a multidisciplinary thrust in mind, this book argues that any discussion of African migration, whether internal or external, must be conceived as only one aspect of a more complex, organic, and global patterning of "flux and reflux" necessitated by constantly shifting dynamics of world socio-economic, cultural, and political order.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Overall, the book offers an excellent collection of essays on the location of Africa in global migrations. Its multidisciplinary approach is a welcome development vis-a-vis the mainly economic deterministic analysis of migration by other scholars... This fine edited book will certainly register its powerful influences in high and low academic, advocacy and public policy circles. I strongly recommend it as an indispensable companion to all interested in a thorough, original and comparative study of African migrations in global perspective."

--J. Shola Omotola, Redeemer's University, Journal of Immigrant & Refugee Studies
