IOM’s International Dialogue on Migration N°23 South–South Migration: Partnering Strategically for Development

This publication contains the report and supplementary materials of a workshop on “South–South Migration: Partnering Strategically for Development” which was held in Geneva, Switzerland on 24 and 25 March 2014 in the framework of the International Dialogue on Migration (IDM). The workshop, which took place under the overarching theme of the 2014 IDM on “Migration Human Mobility and Development: Emerging Trends and New Opportunities for Partnerships” examined new migratory trends and patterns resulting from global economic, demographic, social and environmental changes with a focus on the dynamics of South–South flows. The workshop assessed the development opportunities and challenges posed by the new mobility trends and exchange examples of partnerships as well as to identify innovative ideas for stronger and multi-stakeholder partnerships aimed at improving the positive outcome of complex migration trends.

Etude sur l’impact des changements environnementaux sur les migrations humaines - les cas du Sénégal et la Côte d’Ivoire

L’UNESCO publie, sous la direction de Marema Touré Thiam et John Crowley, une étude sur l’impact des changements environnementaux sur les migrations humaines au Sénégal et en Côte d’Ivoire. L’ouvrage rassemble les résultats d’un projet mis en œuvre en 2013 par le Secteur des Sciences sociales et humaines (SHS) de l’UNESCO. Si la question des migrations en Afrique de l’Ouest intéresse depuis longtemps l’UNESCO, aussi bien du point de vue des dynamiques sociétales que de celui, plus politique, de l’intégration régionale, la dimension environnementale était marginale dans les travaux antérieurs. Cette nouvelle orientation thématique découle à la fois des priorités institutionnelles et d’une prise en considération des enjeux régionaux.
