The following trends analysis is put together on the basis of available secondary data at the time of publication. It is representative of the available information and therefore indicative of mixed migratory trends in East Africa & Yemen.
Along the Eastern Route (between the Horn of Africa and Yemen)
At the beginning of 2017, movement from Yemen was primarily influenced by the ongoing conflict that left approximately 2 million internally displaced people. However, the numbers of migrants arriving into Yemen from the Horn of Africa via the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden, were slightly lower than in 2016 particularly along the Red Sea route due to reports of deportations from Yemen.
Food security remains a major humanitarian concern in 2018 in multiple contexts. In this report, ACAPS highlights five of the worst affected countries, where large populations are food insecure, and where households and areas are either already in Catastrophe or Famine levels of food insecurity (IPC Phase 5), or are at risk of deteriorating into this situation.
All Yemenis suffer reality of war, but burden of conflict heaviest on most vulnerable – new report
PRESS RELEASES | 12 JAN 2016
While all Yemenis are suffering the reality of war and the prospect of more violence, devastation and poverty, the burden of the current conflict is heaviest on the country’s most vulnerable, says a new Minority Rights Group International (MRG) report.
Yemen: Migrants Held at ‘Torture Camps’
Hold Traffickers, Officials Accountable for Role in Abuses
(Sanaa, May 25, 2014) –Traffickers in Yemen hold African migrants in detention camps, torturing them to extort payment from their families, with the complicity of local officials, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. Sometimes the torture ends in death. The Yemeni government should vigorously investigate and prosecute human traffickers and members of the security forces involved in the abuses.
Overview of the project
The Horn of Africa and Yemen is home to highly visible migration flows, whose numbers have been increasing over the last two decades. Migration in this region has been described as ‘mixed’, a term used to capture the varied social, economic, political, and environmental motivations of individuals who utilise similar migration channels and trajectories, and, as the insights from this project emphasize, the multiple motivations for migration that may co-exist within the same individual.
Human rights abuses, killings, sexual violence, abductions and ransom demands, lack of jobs, discrimination in the workplace and widespread poverty and destitution are some of the many problems facing Ethiopian migrant’s en-route to, transiting through or intending to settle in Yemen, a research report by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and the Regional Mixed Migration Secretariat (RMMS) has uncovered.
