Only 1.5 percent of all Sub-Saharan Africans, living outside their country, live within the European Union. More than two-thirds of all migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa, however, migrate to other countries within Sub-Saharan Africa (approximately 16.3 million). Sub-Saharan Africa is also a region characterized by high numbers of forced migrants. It has the world’s highest concentration of internally...
