Executive Training: The Transnational Governance of Migration and Mobility in Africa


What are the normative, institutional, and financial frameworks required for effective transnational governance of migration and mobility in Africa? This Executive Training will enable participants to develop a deeper ability to identify both the opportunities for and obstacles to effective and sustainable policy-making on human mobility.

Working together in an interactive setting, participants will examine the key bilateral, multilateral, and interregional frames of cooperation, with a focus on transnational decision-making processes and implementation in the African continent. The Training will also provide an opportunity to examine recent regional and continental mega initiatives such as the African Continental Free Trade Agreement and will facilitate discussion around transnational governance of mobility through the regulation of different political domains (border governance, protocols for free movement of persons, development aid, education, human rights, humanitarian disasters, public security, public health, tourism, trade).

This training is organized by the Migration Policy Centre at the European University Institute in collaboration with the Uganda Council on Foreign Relations and the School of Transnational Governance at the European University Institute.
