About the North Africa Regional Hub
As part of the MMC global network, MMC North Africa works towards the objectives of the MMC by engaging in data collection, research, analysis and policy development on mixed migration.
MMC North Africa provides high-quality information and analysis on the mixed migration patterns and dynamics of people on the move, primarily from West and East Africa to and through countries in North Africa. Its primary objectives are to fill the knowledge gap on mixed migration in the region; to inform programming for refugees and migrants, particularly in the area of protection; and to inform policy-making around the rights and protection of people on the move. The core countries of focus for this region are Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia. MMC’s flagship data collection project ‘4Mi’ is implemented in Libya, Sudan and Tunisia. MMC North Africa collaborates closely with the MMC West Africa and East Africa & Yemen to triangulate the data collected across the hubs and, where possible, to carry out route-based analysis.
