Curated Conversations All episodes

Exploring the Politics of Migration through Ideas is a podcast series that examines the past, present, and possible futures of migration within and from the African continent. It seeks to forge a new discussion around African migration in Europe and the West, but also within Africa itself: one that foregrounds African knowledge, lived experience, and political thought towards a humane and socially just order of mobility. Hosted by African Arguments and the Heinrich Boll Foundation’s African Migration Hub.

Internal Displacement in Ethiopia: Towards a New Policy and Legal Framework for Durable Solutions

New Publication

This analysis reviews and identifies gaps within the existing legal and policy frameworks related to internally displaced persons (IDPs) using an approach based on human security. It provides recommendations on the protection of these groups from attacks, pervasive human rights abuses and re-displacement, thereby contributing to the consolidation of a durable solution based on proactive policies and a new legal framework.
