Migration in North Africa

Conference

On 26 October 2021, KAS PolDiMed organized, in partnership with the University of Sousse and the Municipality of Sousse, a conference on migration in North Africa in Sousse.

The conference aimed to present our conducted study entitled "Migration in North Africa: an uncomfortable position between Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe”. Professor Hassen Boubekri from Tunisia and Professor Mehdi Lahlou from Morocco, who co-authored the study, presented its main findings. The other two panels tackled the conditions for an organized and peaceful migration from North Africa to Europe and how to promote South-South migration.

The event brought together representatives of international and local organizations based in Tunisia, as well as representatives of municipalities and universities.
