Abstract

[More than a third of current international migration takes place in countries of the global South, a phenomenon which is key for the social and economic transformation of the world in general and of the South in particular. Even if most of this migration is South–South, and not, as is often thought, South–North, this phenomenon has remained “invisibilized” as a result of the politicization and strong media interest in the latter. Besides, due to the lack of relevant and reliable data, and to the different definitions of this phenomenon, it has been studied mostly by approximation. In particular, many studies on African migration suffer from shortcomings in the representative nature of the samples used.]
