South - South

South - South refers to international migration between the countries of the South.  Very little information exists on children migrating between developing countries, as the predominant work has been on migration from countries of the south to industrialised countries of the North.  The phenomenon of South-South migration is neither insignificant nor limited to a select few developing countries. Although the phenomenon of South-South migration is not new, the migration of people within developing countries has been consistently underpayed by researchers and policymakers. The list below highlights the most recent documents added to the theme of South-South migration. More results of South-South migration can be viewed by clicking at the link at the end of the page.
