Social Media and Migration Observatory

On any given day thousands of Africans are on the move…

And every journey is different…

New technologies enable us to share stories…

Welcome to the Social Media and Migration Observatory, where we have collected the stories of the journeys of African migrants in their own words and have made them available. Using new forms of media, we now have greater opportunities to share stories, from the perspective of those on the move. This website collects these stories and organizes them around six key stages of some journeys. You can navigate this website either by exploring one of these stages, by viewing all posts, or by filtering according to specific tags such as location.
