Chapter Summary

This chapter is based on materials collected during a mission to Burkina Faso, organised by 'International Migration and Development, Viewpoints and Policy Initiatives from the Countries of Origin', a joint project of Radboud University and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The subjects selected for the symposium illustrate that the migration phenomenon in Burkina Faso is linked to the strategy of poverty reduction and focuses on the causes and effects of internal and regional (African) migration. The chapter explores the context of the migration debate in Burkina Faso and focuses on its policy intentions and achievements. It starts with an overview of the migration history and then discusses features of migration patterns. The policy intentions are seen as an attempt to institutionalise elements of transnational migrant networks. The chapter elaborates on this aspect by giving its importance in the debate on migration and development.

Keywords:Burkina Faso; international migration; migration policy intentions
