Africa Working Group

The ICMC Africa Working Group on Migration was established in September 2010, in collaboration with the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM). The Secretary Generals of the eight regions in Africa gather with representatives from ICMC and SECAM and serve as relay persons to the Conferences and the Episcopal Migration Commissions in their respective sub-regions. The ICMC-SECAM Working Group contributes to organize the exchanges, to inform on global efforts, promote the rights of migrants and better understanding and awareness of all Church actors in Africa. Given the important human mobility within Africa, it also aims to enhance the understanding, the visibility, and the responsive commitment to labor migration in African countries.
