This paper looks at recent discussions and trends on African migration, and reviews recent theoretical and methodological developments on migration decision-making within and beyond Africa, focusing on trajectories, temporalities and dynamics. By doing so, it seeks to better understand the decision-making process of heterogeneous groups of aspiring migrants at different stages in their potential and actual journeys. This paper lays the basis for empirical research focused on migrants in selected African countries in different macro regions in Africa – Kenya, Morocco and Nigeria – and their diasporas in European countries, including Italy and the UK.
