The International Organization for Migration published a special issue of its Migration Policy Practice Journal “Special issue: Migration Outlook for 2015″ (Vol. IV, Number 5, December 2014–January 2015) focusing on trends and challenges of migration in the near future. The “Outlook on migration in Africa in 2015” is signed by Aderanti Adepoju (Human Resources Development Centre, Lagos, Nigeria)
What will the key migration policy challenges be in various regions of the world in the course of 2015? Are the levels and structure of migration flows likely to evolve, for example in terms of types of migration, source countries, and number and profiles of migrants? And what will be the key policy debates around migration policy in 2015, for example in terms of draft legislation and/or new policy and programme interventions, political milestones (e.g. national or local elections) and public opinion trends?
These are the questions put to six distinguished experts in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America and North America, in addition to the Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, in this special issue of Migration Policy Practice.
