Interactions between local communities and transiting migrants in Djibouti

This snapshot presents the main findings on interactions between migrants and local communities in Tadjourah and Obock, Djibouti, based on 365 surveys conducted with local community members in July 2022. Both locations are significant migrant hubs where smugglers organize and facilitate journeys and maintain direct contact with interlocutors in Ethiopia and Yemen.

The mixed-methods study was designed and implemented in partnership with IOM under the 2022 Regional Migrant Response Plan for the Horn of Africa and Yemen to generate an evidence-base on the dynamics between local communities and transiting migrants along the Eastern Route.
