This is the case in Central Africa, where countries like Angola, Congo and Gabon have welcomed many migrants from West Africa (from Mali, Nigeria and Senegal) (Lututala 2007; Ngoie Tshibambe 2010). This is also the case for South Africa, which—since the end of apartheid in the 1990s, has become the new El Dorado for Africans wanting to emigrate (Dika 2009). As a result of these inequalities, and to overcome what appears to be an obstacle to their migration, poor populations sometimes, if not often, migrate through a transit country, or use irregular channels.

The predominance of intrasubregional migration, or migration towards neighboring subregions in Africa and South Asia, reflects a context of poverty because, as we have just seen, poor populations cannot afford higher migration costs or to migrate, or migrate directly, towards more distant regions, something that Bakewell also notes (2009). We also know that poor populations are relatively less educated and less connected to the global system, and therefore have fewer employment opportunities outside their continents.
