The present report has been prepared in fulfilment of the request made in July 2015 by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government that the African Union Commission should submit a biennial report on labour migration statistics in Africa.
This second edition of the Report on Labour Migration Statistics in Africa summarizes statistical information for a period of ten years (2008–17), building on the first edition, which captured data from 2008 to 2015. The focus of this report is on emerging patterns and trends in the stock of international migrants living in African countries. An in-depth analysis of the various factors shaping labour migration does not fall under the report’s scope.
