Sustainable land reforms and irregular migration management
Samuel W. Mwangi , Giuseppe Cirella
AbstractLand-related issues are directly and indirectly the main cause of instability, conflict, and violence in Africa. When we think of addressing the root cause of human displacement and irregular migration in Africa, resolving historical land injustice, mitigating marginalization, and implementation of sustainable land reform ought to be central. Yet, land reform is inadequately considered from the international community toward finding solutions for instability and irregular migration. Land reform legislation hardly shows up in the European Union (EU)-Africa partnership on migration management major policy documents. This research asserts that stability and sustainable migration management in Africa are grounded on enhanced social inclusion established through sustainable land reforms. It also brings to the limelight the disconnection between international relations with Africa in addressing irregular migration and the real threat facing some African communities and households. The linked concept of human security to land security and relational ties to socio-ecological vulnerability and resilience is examined. An exploratory sustainable land reform option is considered as a comprehensive perspective of irregular migration management within the EU-Africa mobility framework.
