Drivers and aspirations of Ethiopians impacted by the Tigray conflict

Data from Somalia and Sudan

This snapshot explores the migration drivers and aspirations of Ethiopians in Somalia and Sudan who have left Ethiopia since the outbreak of conflict in Tigray in November 2020. In so doing, it sheds light on how the conflict has impacted upon mixed migration dynamics in the region and farther afield, including movements west into Sudan to camps along its border and to Khartoum and other urban areas in Sudan; farther north to Libya and Tunisia, with some seeking to reach Europe; as well as east to Somalia, with some Ethiopians joining routes towards the Gulf. This snapshot aims to inform protection responses outside of Ethiopia, highlighting the need for not only a routes-based approach, but also coordinating responses across routes given the complex movement dynamics emanating from the crisis.
