Niger is a significant transit country for migration between West and Central and Northern Africa. There are several reasons for this such as for example, the strategic geographical position of Niger in relation to Libya. Libya is one of the main launching points for boats crossing the Mediterranean towards Europe. Many migrants go to Libya hoping to find a passage towards Italy and many of the migrant deaths that occur in the Mediterrean occur in boats that left Libya.

The Diffa region of Niger has been hosting Nigerian refugees fleeing terrorist violence in the northern states of Niger since 2013. The situation deteriorated dramatically in 2015, with the first attacks on Niger territory in February 2015. The situation became a mixed situation, which included not only Nigerian refugees and returnees (Niger nationals who had migrated but returned to Niger), but also IDPs, who surpassed the numbers of those fleeing Nigeria.
