Unpacking migration challenges in East Africa and the Horn

Long-term solutions require a better understanding of the complex links between migration, the economy, politics and society.

Forced displacement is a major issue in East Africa that has local, regional and international implications. Countries have adopted national strategies but the transnational nature of migration calls for a regional approach that tackles forced displacement and other mixed migration concerns.

This seminar brings together experts from the region to discuss durable solutions to mixed migration challenges. The event draws on a recently published ISS report.

This seminar is jointly hosted by the Institute for Security Studies and the Hanns Seidel Foundation.

Chairperson: Ottilia Anna Maunganidze, Head of Special Projects, ISS
