MAFE “Migration entre l’Afrique et l’Europe”
21 October 2008

The MAFE project (Migration between Africa and Europe) (2008- 2012) is a collaborative research project that started in 2005 with the objective to collect and analyze innovative data on migration between Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe. The MAFE project generated multi-sited, comparative and longitudinal surveys carried out in 3 African countries (Congo, Ghana, Senegal) and 6 European countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, UK). It offers a unique source of data that enables researchers to study the patterns, causes and consequences of African migration. The project partners are INED (Institut National d’Etudes Démographiques) of Parigi, UCL (Centre de Recherche en Démographie et Société, Université Catholique de Louvain-la-Neuve), TSS (The Department of Technology and Society Studies of the University of Maastricht), IPDSR (Institut de formation et de recherche en population, développement et santé de la reproduction – University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar), DSPD (Département des sciences de la population et du développement – Kinshasa University), CMS (Centre for Migration Studies – University of Ghana), the Socio-Demography Research Group, Department of Political and Social Sciences, of the Pompeu Fabra University, the Research Group on Demographic Dynamics, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas of Madrid, SCMR (Sussex Centre for Migration Research of the University of Sussex) and FIERI. The project was funded within the Seventh Framework programme for Research of the European Commission and received the support of the AFD (Agence Française de Développement).

FIERI has been in charge of the Work Package 7 on economic integration paths and outcomes in Europe and reintegration in the origin countries and the economic transnational participation of migrants (remittances, investment in assets, participation to hometown organisations).

All the research materials are available on http://mafeproject.site.ined.fr/en/
