Migration Stories (originally Migr’histoire in French) is a new podcast from the International Organisation for Migration exploring the imaginary concepts behind migration through storytelling.
What does it take for young people to leave their home? To leave everything and everyone they know to move to another country and start again. Over the last years, many young Africans have chosen this – often perilous – path. While economic drivers such as poverty, underdevelopment, and lack of jobs are usually mentioned as push factors, other motivations play a role.
In Migration Stories, Marianne Dioh explores these motivations – which are often located at the imaginary level – through storytelling and the real-life experience of our guests. Each in their own way, our guests transformed their personal migration story into an engagement towards young people living in West and Central Africa today.
