The second series of research podcasts (IOM Research Series) aims to shed light on the work of several researchers specialized in migration studies. This series highlights the recent results from the MigChoice research project, carried out in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration and the University of Birmingham.
What is the link between development interventions and the decision to migrate in West Africa? Are the methodologies of our interventions still effective? Through in-depth ethnographic fieldwork, the researchers took the time to discuss with young people, representatives, local authorities, and development actors in several localities in The Gambia, Senegal, and Guinea. The use of a mixed- methodology allowed them to get as close as possible to the collective memories and the social, political, and cultural histories of each region.
In this second series of podcasts, Marianne Dioh and Bérénice Boukaré welcomed researchers from the MigChoice project, who are taking us back to young Guineans and Gambians’ migratory world, as well as a young researcher and IOM collaborator in The Gambia.
