Background

Niger is a significant transit country for migration between West and Central and Northern Africa. There are several reasons for this such as for example, the strategic geographical position of Niger in relation to Libya. Libya is one of the main launching points for boats crossing the Mediterranean towards Europe. Many migrants go to Libya hoping to find a passage towards Italy and many of the migrant deaths that occur in the Mediterrean occur in boats that left Libya. There is also an effect of economic migration from Niger to southern Libya with well established circular economic migration between the two countries. It has been common for many years for Nigeriens to work for several years in either Libya or Algeria before going back to Niger.
