Book Review: What Scholars are Saying about the Book – Seeking Greener Pastures Abroad: A Migration Profile of Nigeria

October 30, 2016

Seeking Greener Pastures Abroad: A Migration Profile of Nigeria by Aderanti Adepoju and Arie van der Wiel is most informative and illuminating on a subject that had tended to provoke negative reaction because of the media images of desperate young men and women seeking to migrate out of the country without the requisite documentation or skills

‒Professor Akin Mabogunje

Seeking Greener Pastures Abroad: A Migration Profile of Nigeria is an authoritative volume of up to date information on the ‘who’, ‘why’ and ‘with what results’ of international migrations from Nigeria and their implication for Nigeria’s socio economic and political development.

‒Paulina Makinwa Adebusoye Professor and former Director, UN/Economic Commission for Africa

It is amazing the amount and detail of data sourced for the book in a country where access to up-to-date data is a regular complaint by researchers and policy makers. This book is a timely, detailed account of migration dynamics and migrants from Nigeria, Africa’s demographic giant.

‒Professor Annelies Zoomers University of Utrecht, The Netherlands

The book is compelling. A major contribution of the authors is that they frame the discussion in the context of current international debates on migration.

‒Ibrahim Awad Ph.D  Director, International Migration Programme, International Labour Organisation (ILO), Geneva
