Interactions between local communities and transiting migrants in Hargeisa

This snapshot presents the main findings on interactions between migrants and local communities in Hargeisa, based on 201 surveys conducted with local community members in July 2022. Hargeisa is the capital of the Somaliland region and is a place of transit mainly for Ethiopian migrants.

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.
