Policy and institutional frameworks : Senegal country report

Authors Sorana TOMA
Description
This paper gives an outline of the policies adopted in Senegal for dealing with the emigration of its citizens and for engaging with its diaspora. It shows that the country does not have a coherent policy framework for managing this phenomenon, despite the long history and the high level of international out-migration. The managing of migration is done by different governmental departments and ministries, which have been criticized for their lack of coordination. Senegal is increasingly working with European states and has signed several bilateral agreements with France and Spain, whose objectives are reducing irregular flows, organizing legal channels of migration and offering public aid for infrastructure. Moreover, the government has been actively trying to engage Senegalese living abroad in the economic development of Senegal and of their origin communities, while also promoting the return and reintegration of the members of the diaspora. Other actors, such as international organization, private banks and particularly migrant associations have been involved in such efforts.

La migration circulaire des Sénégalais

Authors Marie-Laurence FLAHAUX, Cora MEZGER, Papa SAKHO
Description
La migration circulaire est devenue un thème de discussion important au Sénégal depuis la signature d’accords de partenariat avec les pays de l’Union européenne pour une gestion concertée des migrations. Cependant, elle fait l’objet de peu de recherches au Sénégal. L’analyse suivante repose sur les données de l’enquête ménage du projet MAFE (Migration entre l’AFrique Europe) réalisée en 2008, qui a pour but d’étudier les mouvements migratoires dans toute leur complexité. Les résultats révèlent qu’un migrant sur quatre est rentré au Sénégal après cinq années passées à l’étranger. Les retours d’Afrique ont lieu plus rapidement que ceux des pays du Nord, et les jeunes ont tendance à moins rentrer lorsqu’ils ont migré vers le Nord. Parmi les migrants qui sont revenus au Sénégal, certains ont fait le choix de repartir vers l’étranger : 17 % des migrants qui ont effectué un premier retour résident à l’étranger au moment de l’enquête. Les nouveaux départs varient notamment selon la durée de la première migration et l’âge au moment du retour. Les migrants de retours présents au Sénégal en 2008 sont généralement plus instruits que ceux qui n’ont pas eu d’expérience migratoire et ils sont surreprésentés parmi les indépendants. En outre, la gestion de la migration circulaire et temporaire de travail au Sénégal, encore assez récente, est l’objet de nombreux dysfonctionnements. La discussion des résultats ouvre des pistes de réflexion sur le rôle des institutions compétentes dans ce domaine pour appréhender de façon plus adéquate le phénomène de circulation. With the signing of partnership agreements with EU countries for a concerted management of migration flows, circular migration has become a major topic of discussion in Senegal. Despite this interest, little research exists on this topic in the Senegalese context. The following analysis uses data from the household survey conducted in the framework of the MAFE-Senegal project (Migration between Africa and Europe) in 2008. The main objective of this project is to study complex migratory movements, going beyond the first departure. The results indicate that one out of four migrants has returned to Senegal after five years abroad. Returns from African countries are more common and happen at a faster pace than those from developed countries ; moreover, young people are less likely to return if they had migrated to a country outside Africa. Among those who returned to Senegal, some decide to migrate again : 17 per cent of migrants who made a first return live abroad at the time of the survey. The occurrence of new departures varies, depending in particular on the duration of the first migration and age at the time of the first return. Return migrants living in Senegal in 2008 are generally better educated and are overrepresented among the self-employed. Furthermore, the management of circular migration and temporary work in Senegal, institutionalized only recently, is prone to many problems. The survey results should help lay the groundwork for a deeper reflection on the role of institutions in charge, with the aim to respond more adequately to the phenomenon of circular migration.

La migration des personnes hautement qualifiées depuis et vers le Sénégal : historicité, actualité et perspectives

Authors Serigne Mansour TALL, Aly TANDIAN
Description
Au cours des dernières années, la composition des flux migratoires depuis et vers le Sénégal a connu de profondes évolutions, notamment en raison de la présence croissante de migrants hautement qualifiés. La crise économique, sociale, politique, etc. et la faillite des services sociaux consécutive aux programmes d’ajustement structurel ont considérablement alimenté ce phénomène. L’émigration des Sénégalais hautement qualifiés s’explique en partie par la recherche de meilleures conditions de travail et de salaires plus élevés. Parallèlement, la profonde instabilité politique de la région a précipité l’arrivée massive au Sénégal de migrants hautement qualifiés originaires d’autres pays africains. Ainsi, au Sénégal comme dans les autres pays de départ, la migration hautement qualifiée s’est accentuée - en dépit des efforts mobilisés par les politiques - et concerne désormais tous les secteurs professionnels (santé, enseignement, etc.). In the last years, migratory flows to and from Senegal have taken on new forms . In particular, the migration of highly-skilled individuals has become significant, in the wake of profound political and economic crises and particularly following on from the collapse of the country’s social services provoked by extensive structural adjustment programs. The departure of highly-skilled Senegalese nationals is largely due to economic push and pull factors. But chronic political instability in the region has also brought into Senegal substantial numbers of highly-skilled workers from other African countries. Consequently, highly-skilled migration is on the rise in Senegal as well as in other sending countries and, despite various policy initiatives, it is to be found along the whole spectrum of professional activities (health, teaching, etc.).

Cadre général de la migration internationale sénégalaise : historicité, actualité et prospective.

Authors Serigne Mansour TALL, Aly TANDIAN
Description
Le Sénégal est à la fois un pays d’émigration et un pays d’immigration. Pays d’accueil, historiquement, le Sénégal est devenu un pays de départ vers l’Afrique et la France au début des années 1970, en raison des conséquences du changement climatique et de la crise pétrolière. Par la suite, le mouvement d’émigration s’est intensifié malgré la fermeture des frontières en Europe et les difficultés économiques et les crises politiques en Afrique. Ces départs vers l’étranger sont le prolongement de mouvements migratoires spontanés à l’intérieur du pays vers les grandes villes, c'està-dire l’exode rural. Les nouveaux habitants des villes sont insérés dans le secteur informel qui est connecté aux réseaux transnationaux de départ et de transferts financiers. En effet, les grands marchés de Dakar et Touba sont des zones carrefours, à la fois pour les candidats au départ et pour les remises des émigrés. Les migrations internationales sont donc au coeur du changement territorial et des mutations sociales au Sénégal Abstract Senegal is a country of both in-migration and out-migration. Historically a destination country, Senegal became a country of departure toward Africa and France in the beginning of the 70s because of the impact of climate change and the oil crisis. Later on, out-migration developed in spite of the closure of the European borders, and the economic and political crisis in Africa. Out-migration prolongs spontaneous internal movement of population within the country toward the main cities, or rather, the rural exodus. The new inhabitants of the cities are incorporated into the informal sector, which is connected to transnational networks of migration and financial transfers. The great markets of Dakar and Touba are main crossroads for migration candidates and the destination of migrants’ remittances. International migration is, therefore, at the heart of territorial and social changes in Senegal.

Le cadre juridique des migrations internationales au Sénégal

Authors Adrien DIOH
Description
La présente contribution se propose d’appréhender le cadre législatif et institutionnel des migrations internationales au Sénégal. Il a permis de noter que malgré l’absence d’une politique migratoire nationale, la problématique a fait l’objet d’une réglementation. Sur le plan législatif, le pays adhère à un certain nombre de normes internationales émanant soit de l’Oit, soit des Nations Unies et qui n’ont pas manqué d’impacter sur l’ordre juridique interne. Au plan institutionnel, il a été constaté que le ministère de l’Intérieur, à travers quelques unes de ces directions, joue un rôle important. L’autre enseignement est que l’émigration occupe la portion congrue et que la réglementation concerne surtout le phénomène de l’immigration. Enfin, pour l’essentiel, les règles régissant la migration sont anciennes et de ce fait s’avèrent incapables de prendre en charge les nouvelles mutations que connaît le phénomène migratoire. / This contribution sets out the legislative and institutional framework governing international migration in Senegal. Despite the absence of a national migratory policy, migration has been regulated. At the legislative level, Senegal accepts a number of international rules from the ILO and the United Nations that affect the internal legal system. At the institutional level, the Ministry of Interior plays an important role through its services. Emigration is largely unregulated. Indeed, migration regulation mainly concerns immigration. Finally, migration regulation is dated and is, therefore, unable to deal with recent changes in migration.

African Migrant Women

Description
On the margins of the EU, African women migrants can be important transmitters of social cultural practices. But in certain societies of immigration (France, Spain) these women, because of the ageing factor can be victims of some kind of discrimination. Often their husbands can replace them for new co-spouses. This situation creates tensions and that is, for the women, all the more constraining and painful when the women carry on a productive and reproductive activity. this proposal, through a specific anthropological demography methodology, wants to bring into question meaningful motions of ethnicity, transnationalisation, gender and the changing context in relation to aesthetic and body concepts of African women in the settlement countries mainly in Spain and France (Europe) and in Senegal and Gambia (Africa).

Migration et genre au Sénégal

Authors Papa SAKHO, Rosalie A. DIOP, Madon AWISSI-SALL
Description
Les rapports de genre dans la migration sénégalaise connaissent une évolution notable depuis une trentaine d’années, marquées par la croissance de la présence féminine dans les mouvements internationaux de personnes. Dans les milieux de départ, les mutations socioculturelles s’affirment tant en milieu urbain que rural, et les difficultés économiques sont de plus en plus aiguës. Dans les pays de destination, les conditions d’installation deviennent sans cesse plus contraignantes. Malgré les contraintes de données, souvent parcellaires quand elles sont disponibles, l’analyse s’appuie sur des enquêtes récentes menées à Dakar et dans la vallée du fleuve Sénégal, deux espaces assez représentatifs des foyers de départ urbains et ruraux. Elle livre des éléments de réponse sur le profil de la migrante sénégalaise, surtout citadine, sur son statut économique et les raisons de sa migration. Ainsi, la migration féminine autonome s’amplifie en particulier en direction de l’Europe avec la réorientation des flux de la migration sénégalaise. En outre, le profil de la migrante sénégalaise se distingue relativement de celui des hommes ; elle part plus jeune et revient plus tôt. L’augmentation de l’autonomie féminine s’affirme, par ailleurs, dans les raisons de la migration. Le regroupement familial traduit toujours le poids de l’homme et est encore de mise. Toutefois, plus de la moitié d’entre elles partent pour les mêmes raisons de travail et d’études. Pour mieux cerner les rapports de genre, il serait opportun de revisiter toutes les données collectées antérieurement afin de mieux conceptualiser le phénomène, et de porter plus d’attention aux rapports de la femme dans le ménage de départ en relation avec la migration, afin d’ouvrir davantage de perspectives d’actions de développement dans les pays de départ. / In the framework of Senegalese migration, gender relations have changed significantly over the last thirty years the result, in part, of there being more women in international movements. As a whole, female migration experiences the same patterns of international movements as male migration : in the origin country, they are pushed by rapid changes in the socio-cultural environment both in urban and rural areas, together with worsening socio-economic conditions ; while in the destination country, they face an ever more challenging process of integration. This analysis is based on two recent surveys conducted in Dakar and in the Senegal River Valley, two important emigration regions. Thanks to this data, the profile of Senegalese emigrants can be set out, especially regarding their socio-economic status and their reasons for migration. As a whole, the independent emigration of women is increasing especially towards European countries, a result of the reorientation of Senegalese emigration flows. The profile of female migrants differs slightly from that of their male counterparts. Females tend to be younger when they leave and to return more often than men. As to the reasons for emigration, even if family reasons are still more important for women than for men, today, more than half of female migrants leave Senegal for work or study. Understanding the causes and effects of female migration makes sense for designing development policies in Senegal.

A Visa for Schengen's Europe: Consular practices and regular migration from Senegal to Italy

Authors Francesca ZAMPAGNI
Description
In this paper I am going to explore the process of visa issuance of a European Union Member State's consulate in a country of high emigration, taking the Italian Embassy in Dakar as a case-study. The paper falls into two main sections. In the first part, I will present the context of my analysis, in order to get to grips with the significance of consulates within the wider framework of migration management in countries of origin. Thus, I will focus on the European Union visa policy, which represents one of the key EU instruments for regulation of migration flows from third countries, then on the role of Senegal in EU migration management as well as on the relevance assumed by Italy in Senegalese migratory routes. The second part deals with an analysis of visa' issuing procedures in the Italian consulate in Dakar, taking into account the whole process, from accessing information to issuance/refusal, in order to estimate costs of migrating with documents (‘regularly’) towards the EU. Furthermore, I will focus on family reunification visas to show how practices of control persist even in the case of a recognized right. My argument is that the map of Schengen visas represents a metaphor of the new division in our world, where EU Member States’ consulates filter out ‘undesirable people’ at their gates with the presumption of ‘migration risk’ demanding stricter and stricter requisites for visas. It is difficult not to question the consequences of such practices on the development of the streams of ‘irregular’ migration and on the responsibilities that consulates come to assume. Dans cet article, j’explore le processus de délivrance des visas du consulat d’un État membre de l'Union européenne dans un pays à forte émigration, en prenant l'ambassade d'Italie à Dakar comme une étude de cas. Le document se divise en deux sections principales. Dans la première partie, je présente le contexte de mon analyse afin de se familiariser avec l'importance des consulats dans le cadre plus large de la gestion migratoire dans les pays d'origine. Ainsi, je me concentre sur la politique de l'Union européenne en matière de visas, un des instruments clés de l'UE dans le cadre de la régulation des flux migratoires en provenance des pays tiers. Ensuite, j’étudie le rôle du Sénégal dans la gestion de la migration de l'UE ainsi que sur la pertinence assumée par l'Italie dans sénégalais routes migratoires. La deuxième partie traite de l'analyse de visa »les procédures de délivrance dans le consulat italien à Dakar, en tenant compte de l'ensemble du processus, d'accéder à l'information à l'émission / refus, afin d'estimer les coûts de migration avec des documents (« régulièrement ») vers la UE. Par ailleurs, je vais me concentrer sur les visas de regroupement familial pour montrer comment les pratiques de contrôle de persister même dans le cas d'un droit reconnu. Mon argument est que la carte de visas Schengen représente une métaphore de la nouvelle division dans notre monde, où les Etats membres de l'UE des personnes indésirables »consulats filtrer 'à leurs portes avec la présomption de« risque migratoire exigeants »requis en plus strictes pour les visas . Il est difficile de ne pas remettre en question les conséquences de telles pratiques sur le développement du flux des «irréguliers» des migrations et sur les responsabilités qui viennent consulats à assumer

Klimawandel, Umweltveränderungen und Migration: Sozial-ökologische Bedingungen von Bevölkerungsbewegungen am Beispiel der Sahelländer Mali und Senegal

Principal investigator Martin Doevenspeck (Principal Investigator ), Diana Hummel (Principal Investigator ), Cyrus Samimi (Principal Investigator ), Wolfgang Lutz (Principal Investigator )
Description
Das interdisziplinäre Forschungsprojekt MICLE beschäftigt sich mit den Umweltwandel und Migration in Mali und Senegal. Politiker und Wissenschaftler bezeichnen den Klimawandel als eine der größten Bedrohungen für menschliche Entwicklung in Afrika und sagen massive Bevölkerungsbewegungen als Folge einer zunehmenden Zahl von Extremereignissen wie Dürren, von zunehmender Wasserknappheit, Abnahme der Nahrungsmittelproduktion und Verlust an Biodiversität voraus. Dabei ist das Konstrukt der „Umweltflucht“ aufgrund des ihm inhärenten Geodeterminismus, der konzeptionellen Unklarheiten und politischen Instrumentalisierungen höchst problematisch. Umweltveränderungen als Hauptursache für Migration zu identifizieren ist praktisch unmöglich. Daher beschäftigt sich das Forschungsprojekt mit den multiplen Ursachen von Migration im Sahel um die internen Logiken zu verstehen und Migrationsbewegungen theoretisch zu kontextualisieren.

ImPol Database (Immigration Policies)

Description
The database (ImPol) contains 27 quantitative indicators to measure the entry dimension of immigration policies. The indicators are grouped in five dimensions: Immigration policy concerning irregular entry/residence; Short stay entry policy; Family reunification policy; Policies on entry for study; Work immigration policy. The ImPol dataset was originally conceived as a tool to complement the individual survey data collection carried out in the context of the MAFE-Senegal Project. The information collected so far is limited to France, Italy, and Spain, which are the main destinations of Senegalese migrants in Europe and focuses predominantly on the period from the 1960s until 2008. The legal texts consulted reflect the general policy regime in the three European countries and are hence of use for analyses addressing questions about immigration from a variety of origin countries. In addition, authors collected texts (bilateral agreements) addressing the specific case of the Senegalese. The type of information contained in the ImPol dataset can be used for a wide range of both contextual and statistical analyses

La migration hautement qualifiée de, à travers et vers le Sénégal

Authors Adrien DIOH
Description
Plusieurs facteurs tant historique, politique, géographique qu’économique font que le Sénégal constitue, depuis l’accession à l’indépendance, à la fois un pays d’émigration, d’immigration et de transit. Mais alors qu’il est communément admis que, lorsqu’elle est bien encadrée, la migration des personnes hautement qualifiées peut être mutuellement bénéfique aux pays de départ et aux pays d’accueil, elle n’a pas fait l’objet d’une réglementation spécifique. La raison réside, probablement, dans l’absence d’une politique migratoire nationale attestée, entre autres, par la profusion d’institutions intervenant en la matière. Certains facteurs comme l’appartenance à la Communauté Economique des Etats de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (CEDEAO) qui érige un principe de liberté de circulation et d’établissement des citoyens de cette région et la consécration, en droit social sénégalais, d’un principe de non discrimination entre travailleurs étrangers et travailleurs autochtones peuvent être perçues, a priori, comme favorisant l’immigration. En revanche, la signature avec des pays tiers de conventions bilatérales en matière d’emploi et de main d’œuvre combinée à la suppression, depuis 1981, de l’autorisation préalable de sortie du territoire national constituent autant d’éléments susceptibles d’impacter positivement sur l’émigration. Il convient toutefois de ne pas surestimer la portée de ces différents facteurs puisque non seulement le principe de non discrimination souffre quelques exceptions mais en plus les conventions bilatérales en matière de main d’œuvre ne s’adossent pas toujours sur des conventions de sécurité sociale. Several reasons – historical, political, geographical and economic – explain why Senegal has been a country of emigration, of immigration and of transit since its independence. While highly-skilled migration, when it is well managed, can be beneficial for the country of origin as well as the host country, it has not been regulated in Senegal. This may be because of the lack of a real national migratory policy or, indeed, because of the profusion of competent institutions. Some features may be seen as encouraging immigration: being part of the ECOWAS (Economic Community Of West African States) which advocates for citizens’ freedom of movement and residence in this region; and non-discrimination between national and foreign workers. On the other hand, some elements may encourage emigration: bilateral labour agreements with third countries; and the suppression in 1981 of the exit visa for citizens. It is important, however, not to overestimate these factors, since the principle of non discrimination is not always respected, and the bilateral agreements are not always linked to social security conventions.
