North Africa is a complex migratory hub characterized by major inter-regional movements which in the last several years has witnessed a large increase in numbers of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers looking to reach Europe.

The increase in the numbers of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers traveling in mixed migratory movements constitutes a major political and humanitarian challenge. North Africa is affected by such movements as a region of origin, transit and destination for those who have left their homes fleeing war, conflict, discrimination, and those seeking to improve their opportunities and a better future.

The Mixed Migration Hub focuses on six core countries in North Africa:  Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia.
