Project Target Countries:
The main objectives of this study are to:
- map the total migration flows, stocks and remittances to, from and in each of the EAC countries;
- examine the intra-regional cross-border regular labour migrant flows, trends and patterns in the EAC;
- assess the characteristics of intra-regional cross-border irregular labour migrants in the EAC;
- review the labour market responses in the EAC, in both the countries of origin and destination countries; and
- draw on the findings to recommend priority evidence and data gaps to maximise the potential of labour migration to promote inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in the EAC.
