Mercandalli S.. 2017. In : Mercandalli Sara (ed.), Losch Bruno (ed.). Rural Africa in motion. Dynamics and drivers of migration South of the Sahara. Rome : FAO; CIRAD, p. 22-23.

In sub-Saharan Africa, domestic and international migration to African countries prevails over overseas migration. Due to the region's large rural population and the ongoing urbanization process, rural¿urban migration is a prominent feature, although it actually coexists with renewed, diverse and contrasted other patterns, including rural¿rural, urban¿rural and circular migration. These migration dynamics reshape national and regional spaces, crafting new territorial dynamics.
