Migration in Africa has gained a new impetus in recent years through the expansion of destinations away from local urban centers and regional economic hubs into far-off places beyond the African continent. In the same vein, mobility within Africa itself, in its various forms, has also started to receive more attention. Consequently, there is a pressing need to develop new ways of looking at this phenomenon.

While African mobility outside of the continent has been a central concern in academic studies, the focus in this book, is on opportunities, challenges posed by internal migration and the workings of migration in general in African settings today.

With this contribution, the editors strive to fill some of the gaps about the question of mobility within the African context. Addressing issues specific to people’s mobility and their influence on religion, economy, politics, traditions, societies on shifting grounds, gender relations, and cultural interactions, this volume is an attempt to cover a range of pressing questions on modern migration by Africans within Africa.
