Research and Evidence Facility for the Sahel and Lake Chad Region and the North of Africa

The overall objective of the action is to enhance the knowledge and understanding of the root causes of instability, insecurity, irregular migration and forced displacement in West and North Africa and of migration routes, drivers and underlying factors, as well as to analyse and disseminate the most effective policies and approaches to address and reduce them and improve migration management.

Main objectives

The specific objective is to conduct, synthesize, disseminate and make use of new and existing research on the drivers and dynamics of the root causes of instability, insecurity, irregular migration and forced displacement in West and North Africa and migration routes, and the most successful policy responses aimed at addressing them and improving migration management in order to equip the EUTF with sufficient evidence to refine its identification and implementation processes.

The action will be split in three major components:
i) Conduct multidimensional empirical, quantitative and qualitative research;
ii) Analysis of best practices and of 'what works' aimed at reducing instability, insecurity, irregular migration and forced displacement in the covered region;
iii) Consolidate and disseminate research results.
