Africa is on the move. New geopolitical constellations have prompted individuals and groups
to escape war, authoritarian regimes, environmental crises, and poverty. This has led to
multiple migration patterns and complex mobilities of African people within and outside of
Africa. This volume demonstrates that there is no unifying way to conceptualise the multiple
nature of African mobilities. Some authors have conceptualised mobility on a metaphorical
level while others provide analyses along spatial movement. This volume offers a
vast portrayal of the diversity, innovation and richness of African mobile experiences through
geographical, linguistic and socio-political domains. Providing nuanced and complex analyses
offered by African Studies scholars of various disciplines, this book aims to contribute to
new insights into African mobile experiences and to a repositioning of how Africa is
represented globally.
