Knowledge, attitudes and practices of Ethiopian migrants

This report presents the findings of a survey into the knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) of Ethiopian migrants who intend to travel, have travelled to, or have returned from Yemen or Saudi Arabia. Ethiopian migrants are found on the move in all compass directions out of the Horn of Africa but most, it appears, go east into Yemen. Others may be found going north into Egypt (some to cross the Mediterranean), west into Sudan and possibly on to Libya and beyond and others go south, into Kenya where they may remain and / or move on towards South Africa (and beyond). This research and analysis deliberately interrogates migration knowledge, attitudes and practices around the eastern route by Ethiopians into Yemen and the Gulf States.
