Internal migration is a fundamental feature of ACP societies. Based on the review of available literature, existing research and interviews with key stakeholders, this study highlights the positive contribution of internal migration for development in Nigeria. The recommendations call for an increased attention to the positive potential of this phenomenon and for the development of adequate policies and programmes.
The complex realities of ACP countries also call into question the separation between internal and international migration. Through the analysis of local realities in Nigeria, this study proposes new concepts that may engage the debate on the specificities of South-South migration.
