Description générale :

The MAFE project is a large-scale initiative whishing to study migrations between sub-Saharan Africa and Europe. The MAFE project has produced multi-site, comparative and longitudinal surveys in three African countries (Senegal, Congo, Ghana) and six European countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, UK). It provides a unique source of data that allows researchers to study the trends, causes and consequences of African migrations. The data collected in African countries can also be used to study other socio-demographic phenomena (family formation, fertility, socio-economic trajectories, etc.). Because migrations are not solely determined by the individual and family levels, the MAFE project also collected data at the national level. These data are gathered in a contextual database which consists of about 100 indicators covering the 9 MAFE countries in areas such as demography, economy, unemployment, education, political context.
