Perspectives on migration patterns in Ghana's mining industry
AbstractThis paper examines migration patterns in Ghana's mining sector, and briefly highlights linkages between stages of mine development and migration flows. The growth, stagnation and closure phases of mine development may each be characterised by distinct migration patterns. The paper concludes with policy-relevant implications of the dynamics of migration patterns in the mining sector, arguing in particular that Ghana is, in addition to traditionally being a country of destination, becoming a transit area for prospective migrant miners.
