Call title:
Understanding migration mobility patterns: elaborating mid and long-term migration scenarios
Types of partners sought
I am looking for a consortium conducting research on migrations from sub-Saharan Africa to Europe. A lot has already been done on the topic as seen in the conference report of the international conference, 4-5 February 2016, Brussels). I am going to contextualize the phenomenon of migration by highlighting continuity and differences with previous waves of immigration from sub-Saharan Africa, and by developing numerous and intensive case studies, so as to define a typology of the various trajectories of the subsaharan migrants to Europe. In order to foster improved responses for a successful integration of migrants in Europe, I will try to provide evidence based knowledge on the effect of migrations on social systems, labor markets and everyday-life.

Lucie ZOUYA MIMBANG - Researcher at the University of Strasbourg (France) :

A qualitative analysis is needed to complete the statistical data. Sub- Saharan African migrants have been transiting to Europe through complex pathways and this for many years.
As a professional researcher in economic and social History having worked at the Cameroonian Ministry of Research and Innovation from 1985 to 2012, I have long practiced field surveys.

So, I can offer:
-My ability to carry out a research program and to publish the results.
-My knowledge on problems of migrations inside Africa in the past and nowadays: my inquiries on wars, transfontier problems and conflict resolution can be found in a report at the Cameroonian Ministry of Scientific Research and Innovation.
-My own experience as a traveler from Africa to Europe: since 1994, I have been travelling from Africa to Europe for research matters. I know the multiple administrative formalities which are necessary to obtain a residence permit.
-Additionally, the confidence of the interviewed person is important. As a sub-Saharan African woman, I am in the best position to interview African migrants and to retrace their itineraries in detail
