In the shadow of emigration: urban mobility inside Ethiopia
The paper is based on a comparison between migration patterns to Shashemene, a town in southern Ethiopia. in 1973 and 2008. In those two years I collected migration trajectories from random samples of households. My first question is how migration patterns to and from the town have changed over the intervening decades and momentous political changes in the country. The second question is how internal migration is related to emigration. In 1973 there was virtually no international migration; in 2008 a fair number of households had emigre´ relatives. How is this movement related to internal migration histories of the remaining households?
