Abstract:This themed section of Africa is concerned with contemporary changes in mobility patterns in Africa. The editors pose that the present intersection of global politics of securitization and African everyday politics governed by inequality, disenchantment, survival and aspiration has accelerated changes in this area. Contributions in this section analyse the social effects of these changes. Contributions: Reconfiguring migration: an introduction (Dorte Thorsen); Why aspiring migrants trust migration brokers: the moral economy of departure in Anglophone Cameroon (Maybritt Jill Alpes); Disrupted migration projects: the moral economy of involuntary return to Ghana from Libya (Nauja Kleist); Is Europe really the dream? Contingent paths among sub-Saharan migrants in Morocco (Dorte Thorsen). Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. in English and French. [ASC Leiden abstract]
