Migration between Africa and Australia : a demographic perspective /

by Hugo, Graeme | Australian Human Rights Commission.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Australian Human Rights Commission 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Background paper for African Australians : a review of human.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 66-70Summary: One of the fastest growing and most important types of African population mobility is that directed out of the continent toward so-called 'north' countries. However, it is neglected by many examinations of African migration and little is known of its nature and impact. Yet unlike the situation with respect to much migration within Africa, there is high quality data available to examine the migration collected at the destination. This paper demonstrates that the high quality of both flow and stock international migration data, as well as a national longitudinal survey in Australia, provide an excellent opportunity to examine in depth the nature of 'south-north' migration from Africa and also the 'north-south' movement from Australia to Africa. Moreover, the highly developed Australian international migration data system provides some useful lessons for the enhancement of such systems in African nations. ; International migration between Africa and Australia has a long history. However, it has accelerated in recent years and now incorporates a number of components. These are analysed here in some detail since, to some extent, they exemplify the diverse types of south-north migration which are assuming increasing significance in Africa. In addition the paper demonstrates the potential of high-quality stock and flow data on international migration, together with a national longitudinal survey, to shed light on patterns of migration and inform the development of effective and timely migration and settlement policy. A number of different types of African migrants moving to Australia are identified, their movements analysed and the implications for origin and destination countries discussed.Availability: (1)
