Louis Boakye-Yiadom: Internal Migration in Ghana. Identifying the Migrant and an Examination of Prevalence and Patterns between 2013 and 2017
For many years, migration has featured extensively in academic and public discussions, and its prominence shows no sign of abatement. While much of the focus of the migration discourse has been on international migration, available evidence suggests that internal migration also merits considerable attention. This lecture first highlights the nuances of the notion of migration and of related concepts, such as migrant and migrant household, especially in the context of the analysis of survey data. It then proceeds to use data from the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 Ghana Living Standards Surveys (GLSS 6 and 7) to examine the incidence and patterns of Ghana’s internal migration, bringing to the fore some valuable dimensions.
Dr Boakye-Yiadom is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Economics, University of Ghana and currently a MIASA Research Fellow. He holds a PhD (Economics) from the University of Bath, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Ghana and Virginia Tech. He has research interest in household livelihood strategies and their welfare impacts, the economics of gender, family economics, and the microeconomic analysis of education. Although Boakye-Yiadom has taught various courses at undergraduate and graduate levels, his teaching in recent years has focused on development economics.
The MIASA Public Lecture Series features fellows in residence at the Maria Sibylla Merian Institute for Advanced Studies Africa.
