Summary Fifteen chapters are included here in this compendium in honour of the Nigerian migration scholar Professor Aderanti Adepoju. Though the authors come from diverse disciplinary backgrounds - geography, demography, sociology and law - they all work within the fields of internal and international migration in Africa. Chapters on Uganda, Kenya, Botswana, Nigeria, and Mali are devoted to aspects of internal migration, while those on African emigration to Mexico and migration between Burkina Faso and Côte d'Ivoire address various aspects of international migration. Migration issues in relation to women, students, and climate change are also discussed
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references at the end of each chapters
