Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


It is a reality that at the end of the 20th century practically all urbanized nations have become countries of immigration, exhilarating numbers of immigrants are not only from developed areas of the world but progressively more from developing countries of the Third World, for example, African countries. It is a fact that there are numerous reasons for people migration. In the 15th century most of the migration was forced (slave trade), today’s reasons are different and more complex. Nevertheless today’s migration has major impact on people lives, global political and economical development of the world. No matter that official slavery trade is over, however, we can assume that some of the reasons for leaving the homeland could be explained as forcing factors of migration. The circumstances, which are influencing the migration, are that what the project group is prepared to find out in their pilot project. Our focus is on Nigerian people migration to Denmark. We want to investigate the main reasons for Nigerian migration from Nigeria to Denmark and what are the consequences of it. We also would like to find out if immigrants are interested in coming back to their home country and what motives do they have.
