Migration in Sudan: New directions in changing times

Bergen Global is hosting a seminar exploring new directions in migration policies in Sudan on Wednesday 20 October 2021 from 10.00-11.30AM.

In this webinar, the speakers will address the increasing pressures for Sudan to both take in refugees, such as Ethiopians from Tigray, and prevent onwards migration through national policies such as work permits and business restrictions, EU-driven policies, and other multilateral incentives such as the Khartoum Process.


  • Prof. Munzoul Assal is a Professor of Social Anthropology and Dean of Scientific Research at the Univ. of Khartoum. He has been a long-standing researcher on refugees, migration and border issues in Sudan.
  • Mr. Adam Babekir an administrative researcher in Center for Refugees, Migration & Development Studies, University of Gedaref. He researches issues dealing with Sudan and Ethiopia borders.
  • Salam Kanhoush is a student and activist in Kassala. He is a Syrian refugee and has been an active contributing member to both his diaspora and local community. He’s a One Young World Ambassador and change agent at Orange Corners and a TEDx speaker.

The discussion will be moderated by Sarah A Tobin, Research Professor at the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), and a leading researcher on migration and refugees in the Middle East.
