Up to Two-Thirds of Sub-Saharan Africa’s 1.1 Billion People Want to Migrate to the EU, U.S.
Up to two-thirds of sub-Saharan Africa’s 1.1 billion population want to migrate to Europe or to the United States, with millions planning to make the move in the next five years.
Around half of people in Kenya, Tanzania, Senegal, and South Africa, and three quarters of those questioned in Ghana and Nigeria, want to immigrate to the U.S. or Europe, according to a study by Pew Research Centre published Thursday.
Around 40 per cent of those in Senegal, Ghana, and Nigeria who want to leave said they intend to do so in the next five years.
At least one million sub-Saharan Africans have already migrated to Europe between 2010 and 2017. The majority, 970,000, were asylum seekers; the rest is comprised of Africans who have arrived as students, resettled refugees, and through family reunification.
