Migration in Ghana: A Country Profile 2019

The 2019 Ghana Migration Profile is a comprehensive and user-friendly repository of relevant migration data covering topics that include, among others, internal migration dynamics, human trafficking, the diaspora, remittances and labour migration. The profile – realized thanks to the longstanding commitment of key national stakeholders, and with support from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and funding from the European Union – is a major reference document for policymakers, academia and migration stakeholders that will support effective migration governance and evidence-based policymaking, with a view to maximizing and harnessing the benefits of migration for sustainable development.
