This publication, aptly titled: ‘The Diaspora Decade: perspectives on African migration-related issues’ contains six chapters written by young African professionals selected from the Young Professionals Research Series annual competition, organised by the Network of Migration Research on Africa (NOMRA).
Some of the chapters derive from doctoral dissertations and others present recent research findings on the subject matter. The outlet for young researchers for publication in reputable journals and books is often limited, and climbing the publication ladder can sometimes be a challenge; hence NOMRA took the initiative to encourage its young members to publish recent research findings in a Young Professionals’ Research Series.

This is the first in the series of such publications and forms a collection around themes of inter-continental female migration, the diaspora and their engagement with home and host countries, and intra-continental student mobility – all from a distinctively African perspective.

We hope young scholars working on migration and development issues will be motivated by this publication, and that it will be of value to a variety of stakeholders: governments in sending and receiving countries, diaspora communities, policy makers, NGO officials, as well as other researchers and students.
