- " Is rural-urban migration an intermediary step to further migration? o Successful coping strategy or leading to further displacement? o Assessing the migration cycle and links with irregular migration o Protection issues to be highlighted?

75 IOM Somalia - Research on Youth, Employment and Migration negative coping mechanisms.” A word on social media: Social media offers immediate access to youth groups. Humanitarians must find a way to better harness these networks and capitalize on youths desire to be “connected”. Interesting recs: Project registration with social media accounts vs mails or mobile phones Linkages between employers and youth with similar interests Sensitization campaigns; perception and migration Workshop 2: CAPITALIZING ON THE DIASPORA " Understanding the diaspora’s involvement o Positive impact - Policy making role of the diaspora – In Hargeysa, where the government is locted, migrants were more likely to have lived abroad – suggesting some truth to frequent claims that returning members of the diaspora make up a material portion of the government there. ! How can this contribute to greater awareness for the migrants/displaced/youth? o Negative impact – What groups diaspora finance, what trade POSTIVE IMPACT - Policy making role of diaspora AND CAPITALIZING on the Diaspora In terms of understanding the diaspora involvement, discussions on how to harness the potential of the Somali diaspora in the development in Somalia.

The local population need to be understanding in terms of learning to work with the skills that they have; Somali diaspora have a duty to rebuild the population BUT the length of time a diaspora has spent may determine whether there is a will to contribute.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
