The aim of the workshop is to create an International Research Network
The Sudan has a long history of population movements and migration but recently it has emerged as the most important hub of migration in the Horn of Africa.
As a result of the deliberations during the Sudanese German Forum on Scientific Research and Academic Cooperation 7 to 9 March 2016 and following the recommendations of the forum to collaborate in social science research, a considerable number of interested scholars have met at the premises of the Ministry of Higher Education on 10 March to discuss ways of establishing cooperation in research on migration.
Following the recommendations of the Sudanese German Forum on Scientific Research and Academic Cooperation hosted at the premises of the Ministry of Higher Education of The Sudan in March this year the University of Gadarif will host a workshop on the subject of International Migration from the Horn of Africa to the Sudan and from there onwards
