Resumen Descriptivo: 

According to the 2009 Nigeria migration profile, about 74 per cent of all immigrants living in Nigeria were from other ECOWAS countries. These dynamics of the migratory movements in Nigeria have continued and have sometimes led to stormy discourse on the relationships between migration and development.

Nigeria continues to face challenges in managing its migration due to insufficient research and empirical-based information on trends and patterns of migration in Nigeria to influence policies and interventions. There is an urgent need to increase the knowledge base and understanding of the factors shaping the migration context in Nigeria.

The research conference was conducted to forge a linkage between empirical analysis and contemporary theories in various aspects of migration based on theoretical reflection, and how this can be applied by institutions of government, policy gatekeepers, and other development actors to improve sector-specific and overall management of migration in Nigeria.

This publication is a compilation of six quality research papers presented during the Conference on National Migration Policy Thematic Areas. The papers covered various aspects of migration such as migration and urbanization, human trafficking, migration and development, displacement and internal migration.

The research papers provide empirical knowledge and information on the factors shaping migration issues in Nigeria and recommendations for appropriate interventions to address the challenges of migration in Nigeria.
