COVID-19 and social and economic rights of migrants in Mali : Analysis of 4Mi data collected in Mali between July 2020 and January 2021

The Mixed Migration Centre produced this 4Mi data analysis with the financial and technical support of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). The analysis is part of a broader OHCHR project focusing on the socio-economic impacts of migrants’ human rights in Niger in the context of COVID-19, under the auspices of OHCHR’s Surge Initiative and its objective to develop disaggregated data and evidence to inform legal, policy, planning and programming at the country level. The outcomes of this analysis will also serve as a basis for future activities of the PROMIS project, a UNODC-OHCHR joint initiative aimed at promoting a human rights-based response to smuggling of migrants and to effectively respond to human rights violations related to irregular migration in West Africa. The analysis is based on primary data collected in Niger through the 4Mi, which is the Mixed Migration Centre’s flagship primary data collection system, an innovative approach that helps fill knowledge gaps and inform policy and response regarding the nature of mixed migratory movements.
