Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the issues as these appear currently in the international migration debate in the context of sub- Saharan Africa. In order to achieve a better understanding of the perception of migration and current policy initiatives in countries of origin, a selected group of experts from sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Latin America and Europe were invited to participate in an expert meeting. The chapter gives a summary of the conclusions that were the result of an expert meeting. The participants at the meeting agreed that migration is multidimensional and cannot be reduced to simple causalities. Migration is no longer logical to make distinction between countries as being sending, receiving or transit, since many countries have to deal with all these three dimensions at the same time. The chapter also presents an overview of the book and how the other chapters in the book are organized.
