Chapter Summary

This chapter explores how Senegalese foreign workers-essentially unskilled and semi-skilled workers work as hawkers or hustlers, or self-employed in their own small businesses, and in all sectors of the economy in the host country. It then examines some policies and reforms that could lead to better management of migrations, and assesses the Senegalese government's capacity and political willingness to address the control of migration flows, especially the brain drain. The chapter analyses the adequacy and efficiency of existing initiatives in managing the positive and negative aspects of migrations. It also examines policies and reforms that would lead to increased development outcomes, and assesses the Senegalese government's capacity and political willingness to foster strategies addressing the control of migration flows, mainly the brain drain. The chapter also considers the issues related to the contributions of migration in poverty reduction while causing brain drain in Senegal.
