York University research published: study on new migratory paradigm in Cape Verde and in Africa

York University research published: study on new migratory paradigm in Cape Verde and in Africa Pedro F. Marcelino has released a study on the new migratory paradigm emerging in post-9/11 Cape Verde. The study reflects a socio-economic context in which out-migration to traditional overseas destinations is no longer the only migratory phenomenon in the islands. The country has seen a steep increase in part- and full-time resident Europeans, as well as Chinese and continental African migrants.
