Swiss-African Migration Network


The objective of the Swiss-African Migration (SAM) network is to build and strengthen long-term partnerships between migration researchers in Africa and Switzerland.

The inaugural call was launched in mid 2018, the second call followed in early 2019 (closed 15 April 2019), a third call (closed 15 September 2019), and a fourth call (closed 5 September 2020). Within the large field of human migration, we focus on aspects of migration to Europe before migrants reach their destination. This includes the following topics:

- Reasons and motivations to migrate. Here we seek novel research on the role of limited and contradictory information in decisions to migrate, on aspirations and abilities to migrate, on the nature of different ‘pull’ effects and the choice of destination country, or on the role of information in decisions to migrate. Research may focus on questions of preparations, anticipation of problems ‘en route’ and in the country of destination (e.g. discrimination), or on similarities and differences between South-South and South-North migration.

- Student migration. Here we seek novel research on student migration from Africa to Switzerland and Europe, as a specific motivation to migrate.

- Migration and health. Here we seek novel research on the situation ‘en route’ to Europe, how health affects decisions to migrate (or stay put), how the migration experience itself affects the mental and physical health of migrants, or the migration trajectories of health workers. We also explore the impact of Covid-19 on migration decisions.

Methodologically and regarding academic discipline, SAM is open, but innovative research is encouraged, as is a focus on social mechanisms.

Joint Survey

We ran a joint survey in 2021.

Current and Past Projects

  • Henrietta Mambo Nyamnjoh -- Negotiating Bushfalling

    Pilgrims’ Progress: Negotiating bushfalling among Anglophone Cameroonian youth    

    Objective: Using the notion of bushfalling (migration as 'hunting' and bringing trophies to the families back home), this project explores the reasons and motivations of Cameroonian youth bushfalling. What new forms of push factors propel and sustain the notion of bushfalling? Methods: Qualitative ethnographic research methods in a multi-sited approach: in-depth interviews, life histories and non-participant observation of would-be migrants. Use of short films to get informants to tell their stories about motivations to migrate. Expected results: Identify the different pull factors that informs prospective migrants' destination, the role of migration syndicates in determining the destination, and the role Social Media regarding migration.

  • Simon Barussaud & Franck Dago -- Student Mobility

    Social network and student mobility from Côte d’Ivoire to France and Switzerland

    Objective: The objective of this study is to analyse the influence of social networks on Ivorian student mobility to Europe. We examine the influence of the social network on the decision making and the role of the network in the selection of the host countries. Methods: We conduct qualitative interviews with different student migrants at various stages of their migratory project. To capture the role of the social network in the migratory project, we also interview members their family and friend. Expected results: We will provide a better understanding on the different ways the Ivoirian students use their network to realize their project to study abroad. We will identify the main obstacles encountered and the individual and collective strategy adopted by the student to overcome them.

  • Amanda Bisong -- Non-state Actors

    Understanding the role of Non- state Actors in West African Migration as tools for information dissemination and inclusive policy making

    Objective: In many European countries, governments have established structures for involving non-state actors in the migration policy dialogue (e.g., http://www.mdplatform.ch). This project maps the current interactions between State and non-state actors in migration policy making and implementation in West Africa (where their interaction with state actors is sketchy, ad-hoc and need based), with an emphasis on the role of non-state actors in information dissemination (especially towards potential migrants and returnees) and inclusion in the migration policy dialogue. Methods: Semi-structured interviews with identified state and non-state actors and focus groups (where possible). Interviews will be carried out in Europe and selected West African States. An online survey will be designed for stakeholders that cannot be interviewed. Expected results: Understanding what role non-state actors can play in information dissemination in the society at large, and with that contribute to changing the negative perception of state actors in West Africa on non-state actors, resulting in more inclusive migration governance in the region.

  • Henrietta Mambo Nyamnjoh -- Bushfalling through the Prism of Further Education

    Ambitions of Bushfalling through the Prism of Further Education: Ethnographic Insights from Conversations with Students in Cameroonian Universities.

    Objective: Investigate how much parents are willing to pay or indebt themselves to pay migration agents – “lines” or “connections” – to facilitate the process of their children’s bushfalling to secure admission into universities in Europe. To what extent is education a springboard to migration? Are aspiring migrants simply willing and ready to go anywhere for the sake of migrating, or do they choose and maintain a well-considered path? Methods: Qualitative research methods, multi-sited research. Expected results: The project will provide an understanding of the workings between migration agents and prospective migrant that has potentially changed the course of migration from bush road to normal road. This exploratory research will unpack how migrants who choose to work without the assistance of a migration agent engage the process.

  • Matthieu Bolay -- Artisanal Miners

    Disentangling the Mobilities of West-African Men on the Move: “Artisanal Miners” and “Migrants to Europe” in Bamako and Niamey

    Objective: Describe two intertwined mobility dynamics that are often approached by two different strands of research and conceptual frameworks though, in practice, they often mix and overlap in the trajectories of African men on the move: mobile artisanal gold mining and migration to Europe. Methods: Use of problem-centred interviews on the im-mobility trajectory of artisanal gold miners and/or prospective migrants to Europe and/or “returnees” from Europe (and its external borders’ countries). Expected results: Insights on the decision to move to Europe and how it is often made “en route” during pre-migration phases of mobility. Understanding how artisanal mining can be a means to finance further mobility to Europe.

    “How can a migration virus kill me when I don’t have a visa?’: Going back on migration decisions to Europe.

    How does Ghana’s initial reported COVID-19 cases influence migration decisions among the youth? Many West African countries recorded their first cases of COVID-19 through nationals and non-nationals who had migrated into the country from Europe. The perception of recent COVID-19 cases as a ‘migration disease’ may have ripple effect on migration decisions.  Using content analysis of online news reports, social media and telephone interviews, this study unravels the relationship between COVID-19 and migration decisions among Ghanaian youth.

    EJM Logo

    Le but principal de l’étude consistera à documenter et comprendre comment les systèmes autour des enfants et des jeunes en mobilité évoluent, afin de mieux prendre en compte leurs besoins et aspirations pour améliorer leur chance de mener une vie digne et acquérir une autonomie en tant qu’adultes. Concrètement, nous chercherons dans un premier temps à vérifier comment le projet EJM de Helvetas permet d’atteindre les jeunes en mobilité, d’identifier leurs besoins et d’y répondre pour s’intéresser par la suite à la diffusion des actions prioritaires en direction de l’ensemble des jeunes dans un contexte donné.
