Mali Crisis: a migration perspective

INTRODUCTION

This paper aims to broaden policy discussions and research on the Mali crisis through a distinctive analysis of the various patterns of human mobility that have been generated or affected due to the crisis in Mali since January 2012. It does so by drawing upon a range of existing materials and data, bringing them together in one framework focusing on the migration dimensions of the crisis. In line with IOM’s Migration Crisis Operational Framework (MCOF), recently approved by Member States at the IOM Council in November 2012,1 this paper uses the “migration crisis” approach to comprehensively analyse the crisis in Mali through a migration lens. This paper expands on IOM report “Mali Migration Crisis at a Glance” from March 2013 (IOM, 2013d). This is intended as a working paper, and may therefore be updated in the coming months.
