Migrations from the Sahel: a new challenge for the Maghreb?- Laura Romero Marín.

The Sahel is currently during a severe crisis making the living conditions even harder. Consequently,  ore people are choosing to flee their country and move to more stable regions, such as Northwest Africa, which has gone from being a transit area on the way to Europe to becoming a destination for migration. This is a new trend, and it is expected that this migration flow will become more significant in the coming years. Therefore, the Maghreb countries must confront this increase of immigration, since its poor management may trigger negative consequences and insecurity, both for these countries and Europe.
