Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the stepwise migration process of sub-Saharan African migrants heading North with a strong actor-centred approach. It aims to gain more insights into the migration processes by investigating migrant's flexibility and dependency. The chapter examines the way sub-Saharan African migrants adapt to and use 'en-route places' in order to understand better the geographical notion of 'place' and the impact of mobility on places. It outlines some methodological considerations concerning the often used concept of transit migration and subsequently the research settings. The stepwise migration process of migrants is predominantly analyzed with the help of the concept transit migration which is generally understood as migration to one country in order to reach another country. It is stated that transit countries near the European borders are generally difficult places for sub-Saharan Africans to live in.

Keywords: European borders; stepwise migration process; sub-Saharan African migrants
