This review summarises what is known on all types of migration and the development impacts of migration.
It is difficult to obtain an accurate picture of the migration situation in Ethiopia today. Limitations with the migration data include the use of varying definitions for different categories of migrants, and the lack of documentation of irregular migration. This review summarizes what is known on: migration context and drivers; outward migration; inward migration; internal migration; migrant routes; and the development impacts of migration.
While migration statistics are unreliable, there is reasonably credible information about the routes and migrant profiles. This literature is more focused on those travelling to the Middle East, with a strong focus on young women in a number of reports. As much of the migration is irregular, this presents challenges for documentation.
