Oppression and exploitation reasons behind migration

Before we invest in fixing a problem shouldn’t we try to understand its causes?
Jesse Ribot and his team of scientists and researchers say climate stress is not the main reason that young men and women are fleeing Africa.
“The people we are working with in the Sahelian zone are oppressed and exploited. They are victims of an economy and political environment that systematically takes away any profits they generate – leaving them continuously destitute”, he says.
