About the East Africa and Yemen Regional Hub
As part of the MMC global network, MMC East Africa and Yemen works towards the objectives of the MMC by engaging in data collection, research, analysis and policy development on mixed migration.
The Mixed Migration Centre’s East Africa and Yemen Regional Hub provides quality information and analysis to improve protection and assistance responses for people on the move. Its primary objectives are to fill knowledge gaps on mixed migration in the region; to inform programming for refugees and migrants, particularly in the area of protection; and to inform policy-making around the rights and protection of people on the move. MMC’s flagship data collection project 4Mi started in East Africa and Yemen in 2014, and to date has collected more than 9000 interviews with refugees and migrants in mixed migration flows. In 2020, 4Mi data collection was ongoing in Kenya, Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Yemen.
